STEM activities – year 3

This week for STEM Week Year 3 having been learning about STEM figures, both historical and modern. On Wednesday we learned about the Wright Brothers and how they were inventors back in the 1800s. The same day we were also introduced to Patricia Porter who is a modern day engineer. She builds, maintains and flies light aircraft. We learned that engineers have to design, make, test and improve their products. We became engineers for the afternoon and we were set the task of designing, making, testing and improving our own marble mazes. We worked well with our partners and created some super marble mazes. Lots of fun was had by all!
