Make, Float, Move

Eight boys from Mrs Cashmore’s Year 7 Science Class have recently been involved in a project with Questacon entitled Make, Float, Move.  The project, delivered  via video conferencing, has been enormously successful engendering a lot of discussion around the central challenge of designing and building a floating crane with the capacity to lift up to 200g weight. Through a series of trial and error Bradley Farley, Eric Harrington, Dylan Jacobson, Kydon Vicino, Logan Wilson, Zach Cook & Daimon Vicino worked through a complex design process that the boys distilled into five components; discuss, design, create, modify, agree & apply.
