The Tuesday afternoon group had a hilarious session yesterday working on a team challenge to build the tallest structure which could support the weight of an orange for 5 seconds. The members split into four small groups and were given 10 minutes to plan their structure and then 10 minutes to build it, using only lollipop sticks and masking tape! All groups worked hard in their teams, sharing ideas, drawing plans, divvying up tasks and collaborating with each other to build some really innovative structures.
A triumphant Nial shows off the winning structure, perfectly planned and executed!
The team challenge required lots of teamwork. Despite some innovative designs (including spiking the orange on a stick!) not every structure passed the test but lots of fun was had by all! Sarah, Simon and Russell’s structure was a perfectly balanced work of art.
