We had an exciting week in Class 1D 'The Giraffes' last week as we all worked on our STEAM project, to create a self-driving car'.  At the beginning of the week we had a special visitor, Bjorn from MIT, who explained how self-driving cars work.  He showed us how they are aware of people and objects around them and even showed us photographs of the car he is building.  In preparation of using a self-driving car, we designed and then made a city using junk modelling materials.  As a class we discussed what to include in the city and how we could layout the city, before making the models to be placed on the map.  To end the week, we showed our parents the city we created and how to navigate the self-driving car around the city.  We also made paper aeroplanes and then tested to see which aeroplane would fly the furthest.
