I am always keen to see how they will use mathematics. They never disappoint me with the creative ways they look at things.
So here are a few precious examples from last week.
The first thing I noticed was some clever use of infographics. The kids had been shown the Piktochart website and ran with it. Here are a few nice examples:
This group used an infographic to present results from a survey they did to find information about technology use and addiction.
This group used their infographic to present information they found in their research
Other groups used "live" surveys to ask visitors to answer a question. They found some great ways to present their results that they built up over the Exhibition period.
This group was asking a big question about racism in sport...
...and they got respondents to place a pin with a football into the pitch to show their answer.
The question of what to do with refugees - voting by marbles.
I really liked this one. You got to put your vote in the balance scale and each ping pong ball had a positive message written on it.
This was a fund way to vote - and the kids loved it.
This called for a tough decision - which is a more significant problem: child soldiers or post traumatic stress disorder in returned service personnel?
The votes were cut into leaf shapes to represent a "tree of hope".
So once again I was very impressed. I hope you enjoyed seeing what the kids came up with.
