Ākonga from Room 5 and some Year 5 students have begun the EPro8 classroom week challenge.

The first day began with getting to know the equipment and how to put it together, communication and technical words. The second day was all about measurement and constructing a bridge!

They had to fit certain criteria. Some examples of this are:

  • A 400mm wide structure must span the 2.5m wide river.
  • A 700mm tall object must be able to pass under the bridge.
  • No part of the bridge touches the river.

The team that fulfilled the most criteria was Team 6: Zavier, Fletcher, Jacob and Tia.

The challenge then continued with Caveman Cars (see them in action below) and Swings.
Ka pai Room 5! 🤩
