STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) Week
Which material would be best for curtains that block sunlight?
During STEM week Year 2 we have been testing materials to work out which material would be best to make sun blocking curtains. We have found out what the words transparent, translucent and opaque mean and also investigated a variety materials to see how much light they let through.
As a part of STEM week Year 2 have been designing and making a windmill for the Mouse of Amsterdam and his family.
We have studied windmills and their design features.
After that, we used the design criteria to draw and label the windmills we were going to make. We had to consider what blade shape might turn best in the wind and add this to our designs. Our windmills were made from card and used a plastic straw to help spin the blades.
