Sinead Cook, a mechanical engineer completing her masters, came to visit us as part of the STEPs programme. She gave a short presentation on being an engineer and asked us lots of questions. Ms Kelly put us into six different groups and we got spagetti, marshmallows and plastercine. We had to brainstorm how to make a tall structure and then try it out with the materials we got. It was difficult to get it to stay up and we had to keep trying. Sinead measured the 2 tallest ones and they were nearly the same. The two teams got a treat to take home.
