The Egg-Drop Challenge
As part of our Integrated Tasks Week, we were set the challenge of designing and making a container which would save an egg from breaking when dropped from a height onto a hard surface. There were a number of rules we had to follow including:
- Must not use a parachute
- Be easy to open and remove the egg
- Be constructed from materials bought from the Challenge Shop using your credit card which has been preloaded with £60.
We tested our containers our using real eggs. Click on the link below to see what we did and how well our containers protected the eggs

Knex Challenge 2021
Class 3 thoroughly enjoyed this year’s Knex Challenge. The task was to build an eco-friendly house which was accessible to all. There were some very ingenious designs and choosing a winner was a really tricky task. Congratulations to Eden, Millie and Jenson who were, after much deliberation, chosen as the winners.
