Year 5/6 Technology

Design Challenges

The children in Year 5 and 6 have enjoyed two technology sessions this year.  Both sessions have involved completing a design challenge.

Challenge 1: Create a ramp for a pingpong ball so that, when you release the ball from the top of a chair,  it takes 10 seconds to hit the ground.

Challenge 2:  To make a moving vehicle, using kinetic energy.

This activity involved using many Habits of Mind.  

Comment below: Which HoM did you use and how successful was your design?
