Burnley Engineering Challenge....

Children in Year 5 and 6 and Class 1/2B have been very busy this term. They are taking part in the Burnley Engineer Challenge. Apprentices from Aircell have been working alongside the older children to make vehicles that will climb a ramp. Adding the electrical components to power the vehicles has been very tricky! The younger children have designed and made vehicles for traditional story characters, and they have included a safety feature which will stop their toy from falling out of the vehicle as it travels down a ramp. We have carried out testing to see what distances the vehicles travel, and how well made they are. The children with the most successful vehicles will go to Turf Moor on the 17th March, where a celebration event is taking place with all the other Primary Schools that are taking part in the challenge.
