Incursions

 

 

Build it understands the demands of the classroom teacher and the limitiations of classroom equipment. So we offer some relief with fun incursions that are designed to support and enhance areas of the Australian curriculum:

 

  • Simple Machines - Students learn and construct everyday objects that use simple machines eg. cranes, seesaw's, windmills, cars, etc...

 

  • Push and Pull - Students learn and construct objects that are effected by a push and pull force.

 

  • Landmarks and construction - Students learn and construct landmarks and buildings, face off in puzzling challenges and problem solving.

 

 

These incursions are linked to these key areas of the curriculum:

 

Physical sciences

The way objects move depends on a variety of factors, including their size and shape
