STEM: Boat Challenge

Today Team Kahu were presented with a challenge; build a boat with limited materials that can hold 1kg of weight without sinking.

The materials were:

  • 1 sheet of tin foil
  • 20cm of tape
  • 2 straws
  • 1 pair of scissors
Students were able to see how the displacement of weight can effect how a boat floats or in some cases sink if the weight is not evenly distributed. 

We had some amazing designs and lots of success!

A WAKA ODYSSEY - Fun in the city!

Today Team Kahu had the most amazing opportunity to actually board the Waka Hourua that have come to Wellington as part of the SchoolsFest program.

Not only did we learn about navigation by stars, birds and wind from the crew of the waka but we also were able to put up the sails, see the crew's sleeping quarters and have a go at steering!

In addition to this we spent some time in Te Papa's learning lab creating our own Waka using the computer assisted drawing package 'Tinkercad'.  The link to this can be found on our Google Classroom pages if your child wishes to explore this further.

A great day was had by all and we would like to thank our parent helpers:

for joining in the fun and making such a great day possible!

Elodie, Rory & Jasmine were interviewed by UNESCO New Zealand, who are one of the major sponsors of the event...
