Year 8 Challenge Weeks

Posted: 9th July 2020

Year 8 have come to the end of their second Challenge Week today and have endured fierce competition so far in a bridge building challenge based on one of Dyson’s challenges, a presentation of their research into bridge design, a timed ‘mystery challenge’ designed to see how well their Element can work together and communicate as a group to solve a puzzle, an Element debate on the front lawn with some very good propositions put forth as well as the rehearsals for their online Year 8 Production. They are looking forward next week to their Dragons’ Den challenge, Bake-Off and Charity Event!
