Tech Challenge

In the last week, Room 24 have completed two Technology Challenges; the Ball Grabber and the Balloon Snatcher.

Tech Challenges are fun tasks where teams of two are give a scenario and need to solve a problem using simple materials.  The teams need to design, develop and test their solutions.  The most effective and efficient solution wins!

Congratulations to Georgia and Kadin who have made it through to the School Tech Challenge!


What Habits of Mind are needed to be successful when designing and developing?
Do you have a similar competition in your school?  What solutions have you created in your competitions?
