Science Challenge

24/10/2013
​Go teamwork!

All participants had a great day trying to be scientists for the day.  There was a huge range of activities for the children and each individual entered two of the challenges on offer.

Engineering tasks included building a bridge to carry a cart complete with ingots, creating a plane that landed close to a target and a balloon powered car that completed a course.  Our electricians had to supply power to a whole city.  There were some great designs of structures to withstand earthquakes and mini-catapults propelling objects at a target.

Kia Ora was fortunate to team up with Dagun State School and the combined team efforts saw them at the top of the score board at lunchtime.  Even though the afternoon session was not so productive, everyone participated well and the ideas were flowing.  A great day with a great bunch of children. 

Congratulations Kia Ora and Dagun!!!​
