Engineers for the week, the 13s designed looping, spiralling, twisting marble roller coasters from nothing but cardboard and sticky tape. Groups had to work together to create the support structure and coaster track.
In Physics the 12s were given the task of building bridges that could withstand the most weight, from nothing but ice lolly sticks, string and glue! Pupils were creative with their designs in the race to build the winning bridge. In the process they learnt about forces and civil engineering.
Students in the 9s and 10s went to Barnes Wetland Centre for an afternoon of pond dipping. They were able to identify many pond species in the water and under the microscope.
