Teams of six students in Key Stage groups take on an unseen problem solving challenge testing their STEM, teamwork skills and creativity.
Primary Problem Solving Challenge
Teams of six Year 5-6 students will have the task of solving a given problem in 1 hour with only the materials provided to them. The Challenge will run along the same lines as our Secondary event with a shorter and age-appropriate problem to solve. This challenge puts curriculum learning, team skills, creativity and ingenuity to the test.
We are looking for schools who are willing to host heats of the competition, offering the potential to involve other local Primary Schools. We can adjust timings to suit across the school day and the event will normally run for about 2 hours.
Judging will take place at the event and scores from across the schools taking part in the region will be collated and the highest score will win the coveted trophy.
There will be a small booking fee of £25 for one team or £40 for two teams, but host schools will compete for free.
