Youngsters from local schools have fun with science
The junior school building at Shebbear College was a hub of excitement and creative activity as they held their ‘Strictly Science’ challenge.
Children from a variety of local schools designed and built bridges from craft materials, learning about the strengths of different shapes.
Helped out by sixth form students, the children learned the importance of teamwork, planning and evaluation through building their structures.
The finished articles were tested for their qualities and winners were presented with prizes by headmaster Simon Weale.
All of the children involved received a certificate to take home from a wonderful event, which enabled youngsters from local schools to meet, learn and have fun.
