STEM inquiry to design a pipeworks

After reading¬†The City of Ember’¬† the girls investigated creating their own pipeworks using a packet of straws, 2 cups and masking tape. Many creative designs were collaboratively constructed to design and make a 60cm pipeworks to transfer water from a high point to a low point. They really enjoyed being engineers and testing and refining their constructions.¬†

  1. Thank you for giving us this task. I found it very fun and hard at the same time because all the resources we had, made us think outside the box and challenge ourselves. My group had a problem where our tape kept falling off because it was soggy. We eventually made it to the end and presented well.

    I have really enjoyed this!
