The students have begun a very different Design Technology project. An 18” model in heavy cardboard of a classic amusement park slide called the Helter Skelter. This involves Science, constructing explanations and designing solutions. The project has been adapted into a marble run, so modification has been necessary. This is all part of the learning process that the students are facing, and it looks like it’s paying off. We have some flourishing designs of the Helter Skelter marble slides in the making and we can’t wait to show everyone all the originality and creativity that has gone into them. Watch this space. You’ll be seeing the final and finished project before long.
Fun Fact: The first Helter Skelter recorded in the UK was in 1906.
