NUSTEM

8th February 2019

This week Year 1 took part in a NUSTEM workshop delivered by Northumbria University. The children practised their reasoning skills to develop fair experiments, and from observations solved problems. The children had to design, build and test boats strong enough to float a goat safely across a river. They had to consider their design, test their predictions before concluding and evaluating their results. They loved exploring which shapes of boat were better than others for keeping goats afloat.
