Scrapheap challenge 2013 – details for schools

Posted in Uncategorized on January 30, 2013 by geevor

Scrapheap challenge details for school

Choose your Yr.7 students (up to 32 students for free).

Divided students into small teams of preferable 2-4 people, with no more than 16 teams from each school.

Help them complete the design guidance worksheets

Contact Jo Buckingham to book them in- either  9:30 – 12.30 or 12.30- 3.10.

The assembly and testing of the waterwheels will take place at Geevor and the scrap materials and tools required on the day of the competition will be provided.

 

 Additional students

We have had many schools requesting to bring more students.  As soon as all the schools have had a chance to book their first group of 32 we will open up any other available slots. We do ask that you bring no more than 16 teams in total. And any additional students will need a different time slot.

We also ask for a £1 donation per extra student over the 32 to go towards running costs of the event.
