Knex Crazy!

Thanks to FOLS, Skiddaw class enjoyed a fantastic Knex morning exploring maths, engineering and team work all mixed together! We learnt about how triangles are a stable and sturdy shape and that constructing things reinforced by triangles makes them more successful. We had competitions to see which team could build the highest sturdy tower and which team could build a helmet that fitted well and had a ‘special feature’. Our creativity and problem solving skills were certainly given a workout and Fran, our session leader who works all over the country, spoke very highly of all team’s perseverance, great ideas and determination. Well done Skiddaw – it was fascinating watching you at work and your teachers were really proud of you all.
