Throughout the week the children designed and created their backpacks with the help of some children from Year 5 before testing their backpacks. The children had a list of factors to test their backpacks against, including how light they were to carry, how strong they were and how durable they were.
The children had lots of fun dropping their backpacks from the pirate ship to test their durability! Then the children re-modelled their backpacks and fixed any broken pieces. Year 1 thoroughly enjoyed being engineers for a week.
