S2 Tunnel vision
Working in groups, the S2’s were creating a tunnel with a mountain of sand for a hot wheels car to go through. They were using basic materials to support their tunnels such as straws and lollipop sticks. Some groups dug the tunnels out with spoons, but other groups tunnels ended up collapsing and they had to start again! They were definitely enjoying themselves. The point of this activity was to develop skills on architectural and structural engineering. This class was taught by a teacher from HeriotWattUniversity. It was very nerve-racking as the mountain could collapse at any moment. However, it was a very fun activity.
