We had a marvelous end of year competition and celebration.
Our scientists competed in teams in two different engineering competitions. Provided only a minimum of supplies, the teams were afforded only 10 minutes to design and build their competition entries.
Our first challenge used 50 gummy bears and 100 toothpicks to build the tallest freestanding structure possible. Many unique design methods were employed. In the end, the winning team members received their prize. See photos below.
Our second challenge materials list was comprised solely of 100 post it notes. No glue, tape, or staples were allowed. This challenge proved to be very difficult. Our scientists struggled to find usable design methods. In the end we had a tie!
Each scientist was then presented a most valuable scientist certificate.
Finally, we enjoyed mini cupcakes.
Thank you to all the parent helpers whom supported this session and the club throughout the year.
A big thank you to Mr Mead as our sponsor too!
See you next year!
