In Science Club, year 6 were faced with a challenge: to construct a structure capable of holding a 500g weight using drinking straws, string and tape. They had to think about reinforcing their structure and how to achieve the aim effectively. Some children pushed straws together and then taped them, allowing greater rigidity and strength. They also considered how many legs their structure might need and positioning them for optimum stability.
