This week’s STEM Club workshop was an egg drop challenge. Participants were aged between 4yo and 12yo, and from different schools. They worked together to design a container to keep the egg intact when dropped from a height. Participants had to consider the strength of different materials, stabilisation techniques, shock absorption and ways to create air resistance to slow the fall. Success was varied. The young people reflected on their designs and considered how they could be improved.

The next STEM Club Workshop will be at 3.40-4.40pm on Monday 8th August, and it will focus on optical illusions. Local primary school children, and children in 4-year old kinder, are welcome. The cost is $5.00 to cover materials and bookings are essential. We would love to see you there.
