IMG_0265.JPGRACV Energy Breakthrough

During Terms three and four we will be working with Grade 5 and 6 students from Sacred Heart in our pushcart challenge. The pushcart event is a challenging but enjoyable way of introducing energy use and technology to students.

The machines are based on the humble billycart, and are pushed energetically through an obstacle course, sprint and circuit events at an event to be held at the College in November.

The teams of eight students will work through a design and construction process to build their pushcart during weekly technology sessions. While most sessions will be face-to-face, some teams may choose to use Edmodo and Skype in order to discuss their designs.
