Day Three - How would you travel to school?

We began the day by thinking about if we could travel to school any way we liked how would we get there and what would happen along the way. We came up with water slides, mobile discos with a dragon DJ, a tree catapult with hover bike amongst others. Today we worked in pairs with people in the group that had not interacted that much as yet, this way we got to know more people and made more friends. In our pairs we discussed our ideas and came to a joint decision on what our idea should encompass, then we created designs for these and thought about how these could be made.

After this we started to construct the basic structure from bits of junk, foam, card, plastic, tubes etc sticking them together, later we would cover them in modroc so the structure would be hidden.

Some of us had used modroc before others had not so everyone learnt how to use it and were a bit shocked by how warm it was to start and how cold it went after it was wetted.

We carefully covered our structures, hiding the bits underneath.

Some bits were very detailed like this hover bike, other worked much larger scale.

Bryony came in to film us at work, but stopped to help out a bit as well.

Most of us are now ready to paint and finish off these which we will do in the morning before moving on to the next activity.
