STEM in P6

Primary 6 have been working hard in their STEM lessons to investigate, predict, design, test and evaluate their work.  They have been able to design and create boats as part of a group, after a number of boat related investigations.  This linked in well with the topic of the Vikings and looked at the power of wind and how this helped power Viking boats.
