One of the children’s engineering challenges for the week was to make slime! To do this, they mixed half a cup of water with half a cup of PVA glue and stirred. Next they mixed a teaspoon of Borax powder with a cup of water. This and a few drops of green food colouring were stirred into the mixture! See the gooey results for yourself 🙂
To mark Engineers Week 2017, a civil engineer visited our school to talk about his job and explain how bridges are constructed. Children had the opportunity to use some of his equipment and ask plenty of questions!! The children in the senior classroom are now in the process of building their own bridges!
