Towering success at Park Estate School
At the end of Term 2, Year 4-6 pupils at Park Estate School took up the challenge of building an arch that their group could all pass under without it falling over, using only A4 paper and cellotape.
Some of our project team's engineers joined in the fun as mentors and were blown away by the pupils' enthusiasm, planning, problem-solving, team work and construction skills that ended up with every team building a successful arch.
The room was full of activity, discussions, multiple collapses (but no giving up) and laughter. Hopefully some of these pupils will consider careers in construction-related areas because there was so much talent in the room.
