To help answer our focus question, ‘Did anyone escape from Alcatraz?’ Year 6 were challenged with designing, building and evaluating a fit for purpose raft to escape from Alcatraz. Prison wardens insisted on several specifications that the children had to try and incorporate into their designs. They also had to adhere to a strict budget of $100 to buy all their materials. Having discussed which materials to purchase from the shop, the children began to construct their designs. We then discovered which raft could withstand the weight of 1kg and could stay afloat during rough seas!
Thank you for bringing in all your recyclable materials.
