Sulman Design Challenge

The students at Sulman have been engaging in a weekly challenge aimed at encouraging team work in the field of design. Challenges have ranged from building towers, bridges, projectiles and aeroplanes!

Last Friday saw the final challenge of the term, with students designing and making aeroplanes using a range of materials. Pictured above is the winning design – with a recorded flight distance of 23 metres! Other commendable designs are pictured below.

This particular design, although aesthetically pleasing, was not able to compete when it came to flying!

This next aeroplane appeared to be lacking structural integrity.

Previously, students designed and built bridges. The bridge that was able to hold the most weight and span the greatest distance was declared the winner!

Points were also awarded for aesthetics!

And the winner was!
