Boat Building in Year 7

Project Based Learning is an approach in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.

But sometimes we try and make it to complicated. In can be as simple as "You have 2 days, working in small teams, with access to limited materials to design & build a working boat that will transport you and your team across 100 meters of water."

This is what Year 7 students have the opportunity to do each year at Geelong College.
