Last Friday we had the privilege of having our dads and some of our family members share the morning with us. We had so much fun!! In Year 3 we did a tech challenge that involved us being split into two teams. The challenge was from BP Challenges called ‘Getting the message across’. We were given the scenario: some friends are trapped on the other side of a wall and across a deep ditch. They are behind a locked gate and do not have the combination to undo the lock.
One team had to write a message with the combination, put it in a container and make the throwing device using rubber band power. The other team (at the same time) had to use the supplied equipment to make a retrieval device to collect the message container once over the wall.
Both teams were separated and not allowed to communicate.
Have a look at the photos below to see how we got on.
