The World’s Strongest Man competition sees people doing amazing things like carrying two large fridges over 30 m, pulling trucks or aircraft and what is the equivalent of carrying a fat man up a lot of stairs. I have to say I enjoy watching the programme. However, as an ex-crane designer I must tell them we have machines for doing that sort of stuff! Of course this inspired the StrongBot Contest which will be taken on by Year 7 and 8 Lambeth Academy Students as par of British Science Week.
Lambeth Academy Students Investigate the Strength of Roamer
When a request came through STEM Net for a STEM Ambassador to help one of our local schools I decided I had to help. A quick conversation with science teacher Ruby Akaje-Macauley about how we could help and we formulated the idea of students first of all testing Roamer’s strength then fi
nding ways of making it stronger. This activity will take place as part of British Science Week on the 17th of March. We will publish the results in the GO Magazine.
