A selection of Key Stage 2 pupils took part in a Knex workshop today.  They faced the challenge of designing and building a new railway station out of Knex.  The station had to meet the following specification: 
   1. have at least two platforms.
   2. be accessible for all.
   3. include a ticket office, coffee shop and toilets.
   4. be no more that 40cm x 30cm.
The children demonstrated fantastic team work, resilience and determination to succeed. 
A winning pair will go forwards in the Engineering final next year.
