Merlin STEM Week Day 3
Today Merlin Class were engineers! We spent the morning learning about water conservation and how people in developing countries are not as fortunate as us to have access to clean water. We looked at a range of water collection structures, like water butts and then worked in small groups of pairs to design our own!
After we had designed our water butts we collected the materials we needed and started building our structures. After our structures were secure, we then attached our butts and figured out how we could get the water to release from it.
We went outside at the end of the day and tested all of our designs, they were all fantastic! The best thing was that everyone's designs were different.
Tomorrow we will be using the knowledge we gained today to help us design an irrigation system for our propagators!
