Engineers’ Week in St. Laurence’s NS

on March 19, 2017

We’ve had a very busy Engineers’ Week here in our school. We were very lucky that two parents, Brian and Dave came to help us.

Brian and Dave told us a lot about the work they do. They work for Intel.

After the talk our teacher divided us up into groups of 6. Our task was to design and build a bridge. We had to talk with each other, listen to everybody’s idea and draw a design for our bridge. We had ice-cream sticks, string, sellotape, blutack, paperclips and elastic bands to use for making our bridges. That was all. The bridge had to go between two chairs and we had to measure the distance so that everybody’s bridge was the same length. We had great fun!
