This week, we have been looking at how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) play an important role in problem solving.
We were set the task of creating a glider that would travel the furthest distance.
Science – We looked at the different forces that would be impacting on our gliders as it travels through the air. We looking specifically at thrust, drag, gravity and lift forces.
Engineering – The engineering aspect of our learning looked at how we made the gliders using the materials we had collected.
Mathematics – We used out mathematical skills to measure the length and width of our gliders as well as measuring the distances our gliders actually travelled.
