Year 2

The Year Two's have been learning in Investigation about Technology. They planned, designed and used recyclable materials to create a boat that could float. We tested the boats to see how many marbles they could hold and then students evaluated their designs. Some boats were more successful than others! The boats that held the most marbles were Ava's & Elijah's and Shaylee's & Billie's. Well done, with your designs and use of materials.
