Week 2 – Balloon Cars
Last week we played some science Kahoot quizzes, testing our scientific and engineering knowledge and used our time to explain how the club will work over the coming weeks. With a variety of children from all the different year groups in KS2, we stressed the importance of paying close instructions and being prepared to make mistakes and learn from them (like true scientists!)
Fortunately, our new group of engineers came in to our first proper session full of energy and paid close attention to the instructions. As a result, we had 26 children leave the session with a fully functioning Balloon Cars, which was fantastic.
Along with the fun, we considered many STEM PRINCIPLES along the way: RESISTANCE, AERODYNAMICS & POTENTIAL/KINETIC ENERGY.
Have a great weekend!
