Year 2s Race Billy Carts in the Name of Science
On Monday, the school day ended with lots of cheering and excitement as the Year 2s geared up for their Billy Cart Grand Prix. The students built and decorated the carts during their woodwork sessions and were excited to take them out and show them off on race day.
Woodwork and science came together throughout Terms 2 and 3 as the process of the construction of the carts helped students develop an understanding of the variety of factors that affect the way objects move and the different forces involved.
The engineering of the Billy cart was assisted by resident artist Bruce Bellman who helped our students design and build the carts from scratch.
