Year 5 DT - making and testing barrels
Date: 24th Sep 2020 @ 12:29pm
In DT, we designed and made barrels to try and help Annie Edson Taylor create the strongest and safest barrel to travel down Niagara Falls in.
We were set a challenge to hold a book up using a piece of A4 paper (it is possible!). We then learned how to strengthen paper using triangular rods.
We combied all of our ideas and then made our own barrels. We carefully placed an egg inide and dropped them off 'Niagara Falls'.
The children (and the staff!) all throughly enjoyed this activity.
