Scrapheap Challenge January 2018
Yes the first of the year here at Inspire2Learn and we are pretty much fully booked on all of the remaining ones from now until July. There will be next year’s event diary coming out soon though so watch this space!
Today we have Oakdene, St Clare’s and Caedmon Primaries attempting the scrapheap challenge. As usual our focus is not on the task but the way that the children work. We have highlighted the importance of team working, listening, compromising and then forming a joint plan where everyone knows their role. Think of it as an assessment centre for a big company! As usual the idea are varied ranging from some vague ideas about how nuclear reactors can work in a school (controversial!) to simple activities that make the environment fun but capture pupil energy. Have a look at some of the children planning and then starting their builds below. As usual the groups will nominate their presenters who will talk about their designs live to the web after about 2.10pm below.
