Year 4 - Magnificent Machines

Year Four students have had a busy week focusing on connecting real world understanding with what they are exploring in class.  They have been designing a machine which can move but it also needed to have a purpose, which was to attempt to solve a genuine real-life problem.  This week, students have been in the final stage of making their proto-type model and preparing to present their model to a wider audience in order to display how forces affect the behaviour of objects.  A great deal of collaboration, problem solving and improvisation has taken place during construction and it was super fun to watch the craft’s final touches being added to finally transform an initial idea into a spectacular machine!
