The boys in Year 5 took part in a STEM (Science Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) challenge where thetask was to design a bridge made from 60 art straws and masking tape which had to span a gap of 50cms.
The boys were in groups of 3 across the year group. Some of the creations were aesthetically pleasing designs whilst others focussed on bridges which held the most weight. The winning bridge held over 8kgs!
The afternoon allowed the boys to demonstrate their teamworking skills and brough out some fantastic engineering ideas.
