Innovation Smash-up at Abbeydale School


What would you do with a box filled with surprise materials? The ingenious Grade 5 students at Abbeydale School came up with an award-winning creation when they participated in the Beakerhead’s Ingenuity Challenge Sept. 14 – 18, 2016.

Beakerhead Ingenuity Challenge


Grade 5 students took part in Beakerhead's Ingenuity Challenge. The prompt was MUSIC. Beakerhead challenged students to be as creative and unique as they could to create something about music. They were sent a package full of ping pong balls, glowsticks, elastics, tin can and bubble wrap. They brainstormed many ideas and then chose their favourite. Students collaborated to improve these ideas and create the final product.


Our Grade 5 students were the winners in their category this year.  The students were recognized for their creative use of materials, innovation and ingenuity.  Congratulations!
