STEM
STEM education is the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an interdisciplinary or integrated approach. The first STEM lesson for our 5/6 class was held on the 7th of February 2018. Students were given the task of designing a two storey 'Arts Centre' that had to meet specific criteria; each level must be a certain size and hold a specific weight, it must be 'earthquake proof' and be constructed out of specific materials. This project links with their inquiry topic of Natural Disasters. Students worked in groups to design their building and began some experimentation with materials. On 14th February 2018, the year 5/6 class continued to refine their construction plans and adapt their models which were put to the test on that day.  There was lots of great interaction within groups and discussion about how to strengthen structures in order to hold a 200 g sandbag and survive the 'Earthquake'test.
