This year, the Global Campus ‘Big Challenge’ was a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) task centred on building a Rube Goldberg Machine.

Students in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 worked simultaneously on the same challenge as part of their Project Based Learning (PBL).

All students worked together in their classes to draft designs, collect materials and build their machines in the most creative way.

In a special Global Campus Assembly, Carla Small showcased all of the videos produced by Years 3-6 in their quest to build a better Rube Goldberg Machine. 

After much trial and tribulation, Miss Small announced that Year 4's massive group effort deserved the top prize, as they were the only year to produce a single Rube Goldberg machine that spanned the entire corridor (and some classrooms) of the top floor of the Upper Primary Block. 

All years demonstrated huge amounts of teamwork, creativity, problem-solving and (most importantly) resilience whilst striving to attain that oh-so difficult success result (after experiencing numerous failed attempts). 

Each and every group showed enormous enthusiasm, coming up with original concepts, experimental materials and clever solutions. Above all, all year groups came away learning multiple lessons about mechanics, strategy and design. 

We thank all students, parents and teachers for their hard work, input and spirit in this year's Big Challenge.
