Young Engineers

PTDC0070Pupils form Mr. Byrne’s 6th class have recently been learning about engineering and inventions. They were learning that most items in our world were designed and created in response to ‘Wants’ and ‘Needs’. When people face a problem, tPTDC0072hey invent and engineer to overcome that problem. In science, they were faced with the problem of getting a piece of paper over a wall to get a message to a friend. They created catapults using just sticks and elastic bands with sellotape. They followed the process of considering the problem, imagining a solution, designing, creating and improving.
