In SNCN STEM Club, our latest challenge has been to design and construct a bridge. The boys and girls worked very hard as a team to design and create fantastic bridges that could withstand the weight of a toy car! Here are some pictures of us in the process of building the bridges.

STEM Club has finished for Christmas but we cannot wait to see current and new members in 2019!

Volcanoes

Our first task in SNCN STEM Club was to construct a Volcano. We used various materials like newspaper, plastic bottles and masking tape to construct the volcano. Paper mache and paint added the final touch to our volcanoes. Needless to say, this was an enjoyable activity spread over two weeks. By combining vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, red food coloring and warm water, we were able to create an active volcano with spilling frothy lava all over the place.
