Wind in Your Sails

30th June 2017
After weeks of hard work, Year 5 went to Beamish Museum today to take part in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) competition. We had to build a working windmill using K'Nex and after many attempts we finalised our design and took it to Beamish. We produced a display outlining our design process and evaluations. The competition consisted of a challenging interview with the judges / engineers and a test of our windmill using an industrial fan. All of our hard work paid off as our windmill worked perfectly and we won the competition!
