K'Nex Competition

Last week, our Year 7 and 8 took part in MEBP’s K’Nex competition - a testament to our school’s commitment to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education! A group of students, armed with K’Nex pieces and fueled by imagination, took on the challenge of constructing structures to guide a bottle of water down and back up a wire.

However, setbacks were inevitable. K’Nex creations fell apart, structures crumbled, and spirits momentarily wavered. But in those moments of difficulty, our students showed incredible resilience. They picked up the pieces, both figuratively and literally, and rebuilt their designs with even greater determination!

As the competition progressed, so did the challenges. From tackling uphill ascents with motor-powered contraptions to pushing the limits of carrying capacity and speed, each task demanded adaptability and perseverance. Through hands-on challenges like the K’Nex competition, our students develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork abilities, preparing them for future success in STEM-related fields.
