mediumblue

Summary

This inspirational programme demonstrates how one teacher is bringing design and technology to life.

It's Brunel Week at Stoke Bishop Primary School in Bristol and teacher Irene Harrison seizes the opportunity to tackle "Bridges" with her Year 5/6 class.

Irene takes her pupils on a guided visit to the nearby Clifton Suspension Bridge before setting them to work on an online set of interactive bridge-building tasks.

With the help of parent governor and bridge engineer Nigel Fletcher the class embark on the unusual challenge of designing and building a model bridge entirely out of food.
