Year 5 and the Institute For Manufacturing

7th March 2018
Year 5 had a very exciting day using their engineering skills!

Children found out about manufacturing and what it means to be a manufacturer. They designed their own T-shirts. They also learnt about buoyancy and designed and made their own boats and tested how much weight they could hold before sinking/toppling.  Then they designed and made a device that would safely carry ping pong balls down a zip line in the quickest possible time. Teams were given points for co-operative working and their performance in each task. What an exciting day!
