Posted by Katelyn M. DeVan on Dec 18, 2015 8:00:00 AM

Last month, Steve Davies (CI Leader, IMS Rogerstone), participated in the first of a series of STEMworks workshops at Pentrepoeth School. Throughout the two-day session, eight teams of three students were tasked with developing a fairground ride that would hold 20 passengers and last for 30 seconds.

Each team was given Flowol 4 software and K’nex kits as tools to construct the project. All teams were involved in programming the ride with various speeds and direction changes utilising LED lighting and sound. The teams were then scored on meeting the basic specifications that were given to them at the beginning of the workshop along with safety and any other unique features they developed.
