The Tech Challenge

In room 5 we've been preparing for the Tech Challenge.

A Tech Challenge is when you are given a real life situation and you have to solve it using the materials you are given.
The challenge we had to do was to make a contraption that could reach over a three metre gap, grab a balloon and bring it back over without the contraption or the balloon touching the ground.
We were given the following materials:
  • 4 sheets of newspaper
  • 1 meter tape
  • 1 meter of string
It was really hard because most of us hadn't done anything like this before. It was challenging for most of us.
