DT – super structures (strength in numbers)

Tuesday 27 June 2023

Our Construction (Design Technology) topic is going down a treat. We are learning how to make freestanding structures using cardboard. We made cylinders which we then joined together to make a super structure. In 1,2B, a super structure with 6 cylinders could hold 20 books. When we added 29 cylinders, it could hold a box full of books and even a whole child. It was so exciting!

Help at home by looking at the 3D shapes that make some of the objects in your home. For example, are your chair legs cylinders or cuboids?
