This year at Smithfield we have a new subject, 'Find Your Place in the Sun'. The Year 10 class faced a collaboration challenge as part of their studies of the Literate Graduate Skillset.
Students worked in groups to plan and build the tallest possible free-standing structure they could in 20 minutes, using only marshmallows, pasta and sticky-tape. While the main focus was on developing students’ collaborative skills, they also utilised their creativity, critical thinking and communication skills.
Well done to all teams and congratulations to the winning team whose structure measured over a metre high.
