This morning, Year 1 became materials scientists, testing a variety of materials for their different properties and finding uses for them. We have a couple of activities that you might want to try that use materials you would find in your home.
Bridge building challenge– use card, pens, rulers- whatever you can find to build a the strongest bridge
Build a nest – can you use materials from around your home to build a nest that will keep an egg safe?
This afternoon, Year 6 became mechanical engineers and built marble runs. They investigated the forces used and tried to slow the marble down. Visit our NUSTEM at home marble run page to find out how to build a marble run at home using cardboard and tape.
