Stable structures

In Design Technology this term Maple have been looking at examples of stable structures. We evaluated examples of picture frames and hope to design and make our own picture frame later in the term.

On Friday, Maple were set the challenge of creating a strong and stable structure using only newspaper; we were surprised to find that it became quite sturdy when rolled up.

The children had to work together in teams to create a structure that would hold the weight of a filled water bottle; they were very inventive!
