Stem Club Week 6 - A shelf for an Elf!

Date: 10th Dec 2022 @ 6:39am

This week in Stem club the children were set a very Christmassy challenge. They were challenged the make a shelf for an elf to sit on using only toothpicks, match sticks and blue tack. The shelf had to hold their elf but also be the tallest. After planning how they would do this they got to work in teams and took on the challenge. We had all different kinds of shelves being made and the children's engineering skills were very evident. Have a look at them in action! 

Could you do this challenge? What would you build the shelf from? How tall do you think you could make it?
