Year 4’s Rube Goldberg Inventions!

13 oktober 2017

This week, Year 4 have been busy in the Da Vinci Centre! To round off their ‘Inventions’ topic, the children were tasked with the challenge of creating Rube Goldberg style chain reaction contraptions.

To make the task harder, they had to also ensure that the final act of the invention was to make a light bulb turn on, whilst to begin the reaction, they had to build and program a robot to move!

All throughout the week, Year 4 learnt a lot about themselves, their teamwork abilities, their resilience and perseverance. They now cannot wait until the next Da Vinci challenge week!
