Engineering

Design and Make

Junior Infants were building and designing towers for Engineers week. Some children worked with Play doh and pasta at one desk. Some children built with K’nex.  We made bugs and 3-D shapes too.  

Junior infants used pasta to create different types of structures. We tried to build the highest towers that we could but the challenge was that it had to stand on its own. We soon realised that a bigger base leads to a more stable tower.
