Today we worked as engineers! Rosie Revere tweeted us today telling us about her inventions and in class we discussed characteristics of an engineer. We were challenged to create a structure using different objects. We soon realised that we were only going to be successful if we used the mindset of an engineer.
The skills we applied were: perseverance, team work, creativity and the ability to learn from our mistakes. This made us resilient and able to keep trying until we achieved a successful structure.
We also worked as designers and started to re-design a section of the swale. We used our observations from our visit to the swale as a stimulus and we will be creating 3D prototypes to match our designs. Some of the designs sound very exciting with ideas such as viewing platforms, building a bridge for the water and insect huts.
