Year 5 Taking Lead with The Rube Goldberg Global Campus Challenge

Year 5 is leading the WHOLE school to collaborate together to create the biggest, most exciting and inventive RUBE GOLDBERG machine that Nord Anglia Education has ever seen!

  • Year 5 GC Challenge Leaders
  • Incorporating Rube Goldberg into PE lessons
  • Y4 Designing Rube Goldberg Machine
  • Nursery building RG machine
  • Reception at work
  • Y3 Making RG Machine
  • Reception GC Challenge - Rube Goldberg Machine
 
The last few weeks have seen Year 5 shine as they have prepared and delivered presentations across the school from Nursery all the way up to Year 6 to explain how each year group can participate in this year’s Global Campus Challenge. 
 
Rube Goldberg machines are complicated inventions that are created to perform a simple operation, or an everyday task. The team at Nord Anglia Education explained that the purpose of this challenge is to support the learning objectives of developing hands-on problem solving, analysis and evaluation skills. Children create a machine using a variety of tools and materials, and have opportunities to work together as: scientists, inventors, mathematicians, engineers, media producers, designers and communicators.
                                                                                                                      
Since the presentations given by Year 5, we have seen a hive of activity across the entire school be it in class or in specialist lessons! Our Global Campus leaders have been helping the teachers to Tweet our whole school progress which you can see here: https://twitter.com/BSBSanlitun
 
Wish us luck! We are being ambitious and hope to retain our title as last year’s winners.
