Science/Technology Day

Thursday, 21 March, 2013 - 09:15 to 15:15

Working in groups, pupils in Years 5 & 6 will participate in the Practical Action challenge to design and build a floating garden - a structure that enables farmers to grow their crops even when the land floods. Years 3 & 4, again working in groups, will be challenged to design and build a marble-run using a range of materials. They must keep the marble running for 5 seconds.

Agriculture, Environmental Science, Food, Materials Science, Maths and Technology
