Engineer’s Week

During Engineer’s week we participated in a range of activities.  We completed posters entitled ‘Engineering our Future’, we tried to make bridges, buildings, windmills, machines and vehicles using a variety of equipment. We even had fun making paper planes. Below are some pictures of the constructions we made.

We made 3D shapes. It was tricky getting them to stick together. It involved alot of concentrating! At home we had to look for examples of 3D shapes . There are lots of examples of 3D shapes in our environment. Can you think of any?
