We visited Christchurch Grammar every day for Science week 2019. Students from ELC to grade 6 got to experience Lego engineering and robotics through fun sessions that explored design and technology in depth.
ELC – Children built knex airplanes and explored why machines fly. They innovated by building airports, communication towers and runways using Knex.
Prep/Grade 1 – These students built Lego washing machines. They explored centrifugal force and even got to wash some cotton in their machines!
Grade 2 – They made conveyor belts and observed pulley mechanics, belt transmission, motion conversions and more
Grade 3 and 4 – They built and coded a carousel. They learnt seven steps of software engineering while also looking at forces, transmissions and ride design.
Grade 5- Grade 6 – They made a dancing robot using Lego technique and coded it to dance a few different cool moves!
What an amazing incursion covering 350+ children in this lovely school!
