Engineering Challenge

Today our Year 6 students took part in Engineering Australia’s Straw Tower competition.

The challenge involved designing and constructing a straw tower with a minimum height of 50cm, weighing less than 60 grams and strong enough to hold 2kg +.

It was a difficult challenge, but all 3 of our teams, the Strawlords, #quack and Awesome Strawsome completed their towers to the required specifications ready for judging and testing.

Well done to the teams who displayed innovative design skills, great team work and super effort!
