It all kicked off on Monday, when teams of children and parents from Year 5 and 6 descended upon Stage One ready to undertake their challenge. Upon arrival, they were met by a strange selection of wooden cubes, lollypop sticks and small plastic glasses and then challenged to create a range of different structures with very specific criteria. To say they rose to the challenge is an understatement! Stage One was soon transformed into a sprawling cityscape filled with towers of all different shapes and sizes as the participants demonstrated all their skill and imagination.
The following day it was the turn of Key Stage 1 to step up to their own STEAM challenge and they did not disappoint! Stage One was overflowing with teams of parents and children as they attempted to construct sturdy bridges, using only straws, paper clips, string and a little bit of tape. Once again the children (and parents) of BISS Puxi showed an incredible range of skills and imagination to create some fantastic bridges which proved themselves to be very strong (and a little strange!). Excellent work Year 1 and 2.
The enthusiasm and excitement that everyone brought to the Science Week Workshops was brilliant and we are all very excited see what the future holds for the budding architects and scientists of BISS Puxi.
