Some children from years 5 and 6 have been attending STEM workshops at Dawlish College. In previous weeks, they have designed their own Space Hotel logo using a CAD (computer aided design) programme called 2D Design and exported these to a laser cutter. These designs were then made into wooden stamps. This week they baked biscuits and used their stamps to imprint their Space Hotel logos.
In science, the children have been testing the strength of reinforced concrete. They have planned and carried out several experiments to see which concrete mix can hold the greatest weight. One group managed to hang nearly 6kg before the piece of concrete gave way.
