Year 8 On a Mission to Mars

Year 8 students were challenged with tasks in D&T and Maths on their enrichment day on Friday 2nd October 2020.

In the Design and Technology faculty, the challenge was to design and build a ‘mars rover vehicle’ that was capable of transporting a cargo of mars rocks across the surface of an area of Mars called Tharsis Montes. Using lightweight materials, electric motors and pulleys, the teams had only 2 hours to design and build a fully functioning vehicle. There were many ups and downs along the way, but the students showed resilience, initiative and innovation in their designs.

The winning team on the day was ‘THE MALT WAGON’ from 8 Elm. Well done!
