Engineering project

Over the last few weeks, our Year 5/6 students have been lucky enough to welcome an engineering student from the University of Melbourne into the class to work on a project. Our visitor presented a series of challenges to explore what engineering is and how it affects our daily lives: from careers in different fields of engineering to creating a cordial factory to exploring what happens when engineering goes wrong. Students learned to apply engineering principles to design tasks and practised soft skills such as communication and teamwork.
