Fan-boat STEAM success

What a great start to the week! With some impressive collaboration and amazing ideas, the Year 5 children created the most amazing fan boats as part of their STEAM day on Monday.

Using the Surface Go devices, to record each stage of the process, the children worked hard to think about the requirements of the task and how to create something that would stay afloat and move across the water with a propeller.

Archimedes provided a few useful tips about keeping the boats light and with a battery-powered circuit and a small motor, they worked out how to give the propeller the energy it needed.

Have a look at the photos to see these creative children and fantastic designs in action.
