Two challenge days complete with posters and certificates! The two challenges can be used to enhance the curriculum as children need to apply existing knowledge of electrical circuits, forces, design and construction in an integrated project. The first challenge involves children designing a way of getting lighthouse keepers back to the mainland from a lighthouse based on a small island 200 metres from the nearest land. In the second challenge teams of children work together to design an aeroplane and then construct a transporter to move it to the next stage of development.
