What better way to learn than through play! The Junior Engineers for Africa (JEFA) arrived in full force with boxes of Lego ready to share their knowledge with the children. All of the JEFA school workshops are designed to promote engineering and technology. One of the workshops for the day would be crazy cranes in which the children were introduced to levers and pulleys. The children were taught how to build a crane and other models which demonstrate pulleys. One of the best aspects of JEFA workshops is the way they engage every single child there.
What happens when you combine paper and pressure, well the children were about to find out! In the next workshop, the children were introduced to the concept of pressure. In pairs, the children built a paper crimper and a press as they explored pressure and how it is useful and used in our everyday lives.
Every year our children (and teachers!) look forward to the visit from the JEFA team and are never disappointed. What an amazing way to learn….through play!
