Year 7 and 8 Energy Quest

Some Year 7 and 8 students were involved in an energy workshop yesterday in the Science department.

They were given the question:  What is an engineer and what do they do?

The first task was to design windmill blades to lift a small bag of stones half a metre off the ground.

The second task was to construct a small car and charge a battery to drive it into a designated space.

The third task was to carry out a speed trial using the car.

The students had a challenging and enjoyable experience.

Well done to the students and Science teachers for taking part in this special activity.
