  • Junior Primary
  • Senior Primary
  • Secondary
  • Senior Secondary/College

Engineering challenges

Students will utilise processes of engineering to compete in challenges that will inspire and inform their interests. Here are the list of activities students can choose from:

  • Mousetrap Racer: how far can you go using the energy stored in the spring. 
  • Straw Tower: Build a straw tower with the best load bearing ability.
  • Geodesic Dome: Use interconnected triangles from straws to form a sphere.
  • Spaghetti Bridge: Use uncooked spaghetti and glue to build the lightest bridge.
  • Hovercraft:  Build a craft using a CD powered by a balloon.
  • Enlightened Timer: Build a timer that will keep a lamp on for 30 seconds.
  • Putt-Putt Coding Challenge: Use Scratch (https://scratch.mit.edu/) to develop a golf game.
