The Physics department’s activities during the last week of term included pupils being asked to create an elastic band powered car and then, using a shared Excel spread sheet, collect results to analyse.

Pupils really went to town building all sort of different cars. They ranged from a converted milk carton, cars built from Lego with a gear box, to self-designed and 3D printed machines, as well as a car made from coat hangers!

The pupils were very creative, showcasing the joined up thinking of STEAM and the collaboration that will come from the Dyson building in the future.
