Year 6 student, Crystal, recently created a cowbot out of junk as part of the module work in science.
With materials like wires, a C cell battery, two lightbulbs, toilet paper rolls and craft supplies, the task was to create a functioning electrical circuit.
The journey was filled with trial and error, but most importantly learning.
Crystal said she faced challenges while connecting wires to lightbulbs. Initial attempts using hot glue and electrical tape failed to produce the desired results. Determined to find a solution, she turned to soldering, which led to cowbot’s success.
Beyond science, this activity was a lesson about two key VSV values – growth and collaboration.
