Last week, Year 4 had the opportunity to become Formula 1 engineers as part of Benson’s drive on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) learning. Children were able to build a F1 racing car, using their engineering skills, out of Lego and then program it with laptops, to race across the school hall. Using their mathematical knowledge, children were able to calculate the speed by measuring the time it took their F1 car to travel a metre. Subsequently, children tried to improve their designs to enable their car to travel faster. It was a wonderful day of practical hands-on learning with every child engaged and committed to building and improving their F1 racing cars.
