Both Year 7 teams have begun their Sunsprint journey for 2015. In two PBL sessions they have put together some concept drawing based on the regulations for this year’s event.
Once the teams were happy with their design they moved to making a model out of cardboard to get an idea of what the car will look like in 3D.
In our PBL session this week the teams will complete their cardboard models. They will then sit down with our Year 10 team and discuss any potential problems that may arise from their design. This peer mentoring is one of the many benefits of this type of project.
In the final PBL session for this term the boys will begin constructing their car. Both teams will use balsa to build their car. More updates will follow over the next few weeks.
