The children put their engineering hats on to really embrace our Earthquakes and Volcanoes topic, designing structures that could withstand an earthquake. Using their understanding of triangles being the strongest shape, the children built a three story structure which was then tested to hold weight and withstand various degrees of earthquakes (aided by jelly!)

We also designed, built and tested rockets. The children spent hours ensuring their rocket would take off and fly through the air successfully, thinking about air resistance and gliding.
