Year 6 took part in a Mission to Mars workshop organised by SETPOINT, an educational charity whose aim is to inspire young people in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We had to build and program a model to complete various tasks on the surface of Mars. This activity involved us working in teams of 4. To be successful we had to work together on trial and improvement tasks. Although it was frustrating at times, when the models did what we wanted them to do it was an amazing feeling.
