School projects

This term the Junior students have been concentrating on personal projects as well as the group activities. One project was to design a car and there were quite a few interested. We have weekly meetings looking at how they are getting on and the reason for their designs. The next step is to learn how to transfer their ideas onto a plan drawn to scale and then to copy the information onto pieces of balsa wood and to start building a small model of their car. Once done, they will present their cars to the school and one will be chosen for the final building stage, a life size cardboard model or a smaller one they can drive! It is important to allow the students the possibility of investing time in personal projects and this may help them to go on to bigger things in life, everyone has to start somewhere.
