The Cambridge @ Robertson K1 children embarked on an exciting, new adventure of inquiry-based learning through our iSTEAM curriculum, where they explored interdisciplinary concepts of innovation, science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics through real world experiences.
They started their exploration on simple machines in our environment. In particular, the wheel and axle, and its amazing use. They learnt that a water wheel is a machine for converting the energy of flowing or falling water into useful forms of power.
In their investigation, they made a water wheel using recycled styrofoam, plastic spoons, stick, and clips. They set up the water wheel and took turns pouring water to make the wheel turn! What an exciting experiment!
