Crack It! (STEM)

This week we continue our focus on Project Based Learning and got Mini Boss back into Templestowe Valley.  Both students and presenters loved being back in our Level 3 Open Space to develop more skills.

This visit saw Mini Boss run our students through a series of puzzles and tasks that required students to work together, problem solve, design and create solutions. Each time a team was successful they were given mini clues.  Each clue needed to be ‘Cracked’, once all clues were collected and cracked they should have combination to the lock around the suitcase!

Students worked in teams to solve a range of puzzles and tasks. Learning to communicate more effectively, actively listen to each other and compromise when making decisions as a team. Challenges included ‘The Marshmallow Tower’, ‘Elastic Cups’, ‘Dominoe Run’, and many more!

Thank you to Mini Boss and to the students were taking on the challenges.
