Fairytale STEAM workshop - Toothpick House Challenge

Saturday, 14th October 2017 - 10:30am

After listening to the story of The Three Little Pigs children will brainstorm on how to build a house from toothpicks that will have sufficient mass to withstand the 'Wind Test' from the Big Bad Wolf. After testing the strength of the build students can improve on their design and learn from their mistakes. By creating, testing and improving using this well loved fairy tale, children are introduced to maths and engineering concepts. Suitable for 8-12 year olds.
