Last Friday (14th of May) Duntroon School went up to Waitaki Valley School to do the technology challenge. We put put into groups of 3-4 and had to complete 3 different challenges. The first thing we had to build was a ski jump. We had limited supplies to use. The goal was to see which teams jump to make the marble travel the further est in the air. The second one we did was a lighthouse. We have to make a LED light work and it had to go on and off by us making a switch. It was how far the tower as. It didn’t matter where the light was. The third one we had to build was a bungy jump platform. We had to see how far off the table we could put the marble and we had to have a marble at the other end.
The BP technology challenge was interesting, but a few things could be changed.
