The School:

Malmesbury Primary School is in their fourth year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students in Year 4 have been busy developing their Essential Skills by going on a trip to McMillan Williams, where they became lawyers for the day. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 3 to Year 6 to put their Essential Skills to the test in a brand new challenge!

The Challenge: Future Transport

Over the course of the day, students were Working in a Team to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. They were set the challenge from Ronnie the Robot, who’d travelled back in time to explain what the world would be like many years in the future. Teams applied their Problem Solving and Staying Positive skill through a series of challenges designed to put their skills to the test. At the end of the day, students tested each others’ designs and practised their presenting by Sharing Ideas in front of the class.

What they said:

  • “Its so important for students to have days like these; its an opportunity to do something that is different!” – Teacher
  • “Their discussions have been great – how they question each other and think about what other people are saying.” – Teacher
  • “We worked better together in the last five minutes than we did in the first ten because we stopped and reflected on how we could work better together.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
