STEM Week Canada and Argentina

Year 5 classes have been taking part in STEM week in school.  We were given a task to design and make a bridge that could be used to carry a toy car across a strip of water.  Many of the children designed and made bridges that could hold the car but some of the bridges, were too short or the car fell off at the sides.  We looked at a range of bridges and sketches some initial designs in our sketch books.  We were only allowed to use paper, cellotape, and scissors.  The children enjoyed the challenge even though we had some cars that ended up as submarines!
