Year 4 STEM challenge

A number of Year 4 pupils took part in the great Arctic STEM Challenge.  Their mission…to make an igloo from marshmallows with a door that closes and opens using cocktail sticks.

The girls immersed themselves in the task, using all their design and technology knowledge and teamwork skills. Along the way, they had to frighten off a prowling polar bear by creating a catapult and launching marshmallows as snowballs. The girls had enormous fun and rose to the challenge superbly with their inventive spirit.  Intrepid designers in the making, well done girls!
