S.T.E.M. Lego Session

S.T.E.M. Lego Session

Yesterday, six students from years five and six were chosen to build a tower crane model. This model consists of three lego kits and over forty steps to complete. It stood roughly 0.6 meters tall and took an hour and a half to construct. We were lucky enough to have some special Lego Engineer teachers come in to work with us whilst we built this model which we were very thankful of because it was quite difficult to build.

Overall it was an enjoyable challenge working with people that are from different year levels.

Here are some pictures and videos of our models including a time lapse of the building process.

In Year 5 we have been learning about how we find the area of rectangles and squares. We even learnt how to find the area of an irregular shape! Mr.B came in to challenge and get us thinking a bit more. We discovered that there are different ways to find the area of a shape with some involving adding and subtracting and others involving multiplication (and sometimes division).

In the below activity we found out the area of our names (as well as demonstrating our artistic skills).

How do you think we went?
