3H have been engaged in a STEAM challenge that was inspired by the Winter Olympics currently being held in PyeongChang. For this challenge the students had to design and build a snow skier statue out of aluminium foil that was able to stand up on skis (Popsicle sticks).

Students then had to race their skier down the ski slope (recycled box) and time their run from the top to the bottom and record this in a table. Some students had to adjust the positioning of their skier to ensure they were able to stay upright on the deep descent.

Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable challenge that touched on many of the STEAM components Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
