Y4 DT Structures

This half term we have been learning about structures. We have talked about engineers and architects and explored shapes that make strong structures. Here we are investigating triangles! We began by making geometric shapes using mini craft sticks and modelling clay. We discovered that triangles were much stronger than square shapes. To put our learning into action, we were challenged to make a geodesic dome out of dowel rods and elastic bands! After practising joining the rods in pairs, we worked in a group to create our 3D structure. It was tricky, but we didn’t give up! Can you tell we are very proud of our efforts?
