What skills were developed?
Students needed to work well collaboratively throughout the project and assessed their own as well as their peer’s contributions to the project weekly.
They also created persuasive adverts for their team and presented these to local businesses in order to secure sponsorship for the final event; time trial races held at the Newham Leisure Centre running track.
What the teacher says
The new format of project days in the middle school has been exciting. It was incredible looking around on build days and design days to see no passengers; all teams involved and focussed, working together in different ways to solve problems and get tasks done.
