BP Technology Challenges this Term

Room 3 are using their thinking skills in the afternoon to solve BP Technology Challenges. This week's challenge was 'Airborne' - using given materials to come up with a way to launch a ping pong ball into the air. The catch is they have to see how far they can get the ball to fly through the air, so they are competing against each other. They have to do a series of thinking, designing, testing and adjusting before the come up with a solution that they are happy with. It is great to see the students working together through these processes and never giving up. They are not only learning design and technology skills, but also problem-solving, teamwork, cooperative skills and resilience.
