The students were very engaged in the different stations and the variations in push and pull elements really made them think about how they would need to adapt or change their vehicle to suit.

Would highly recommend Linked Incursions.”

The resources will certainly come in very handy and we really like how they have everything linked in with the curriculum. Highly recommend!"

I have just asked the students if they thought the incursion could have been improved in any way?...and they said...'it would have been great if we could have kept on going'.
