Sonia, Turua and Malcolm
6 x long sticks
1 x wooden square
2 x pipe cleaners
2 x straws
11 x plastic cubes
1 x bunch of popsicle sticks
4 x wooden small flat pieces
Challenge #1 - Build a structure with a cube as the base:
In challenge 1 it was hard because you had to focus on balancing the structure so it does not fall and bust down and that happened to us a lot, so we had to make it again. It was going well at the start but at the end, not so much.
Challenge #2 - Build the tallest structure that you can and your base can be any size:
Challenge 2 was very interesting because it’s hard to build things on a table when everyone is doing something at the same time. It was going well until it came to the end.
Challenge #3 - Build a structure with something that balances off the side of it:
In challenge 3 you had to make one of your items stick out of the side. It was hard because you had to make it balance and the pipe cleaners were supposed to be the things that stick out, but they touched the table and you cannot let that happen.
