Year 2 Kestrel STEM Week Day 1
Today Year 2 had an eggcellent first day of STEM Week! We began our day by decorating our eggs (we lost a few on the way). Then we worked in our house teams to create three different structures for our eggs to protect them in preparation for dropping them off of the Year 6 balcony. Each group created a wrapped egg, an egg parachute and a box type structure. After we had designed these we tested their strength by dropping them from the top of the Year 6 block! Sadly only 5 of the 15 eggs survived the fall!
In the afternoon we built our very own robotic hands! We worked in our house teams to create two different hands using different types of card. We found that the thicker the card the better! Kio and Awais created a hand that is fantastic for scratching your head.
On top of all this excitement, our chick eggs also arrived! They are planned to hatch on Wednesday and we are sooooooooooo eggcited we just can't wait to meet them!
Tomorrow we will be making our very own catapults, keep an eye out for the photographs. :)
