Billy Carts

Design, build and drive in our engaging and longest running incursion

RECOMMENDED FOR FOUNDATION - YEAR 12

Hands-on, engaging and like no other incursion, we run three variations of our most popular, and longest running incursion to suit all age groups; 

 

P-2 students will investigate different types of vehicles- fast, slow, heavy, light, wood, metal, big, small- and how they compare when raced against each other and down our ramp.

3-4 students will race against the clock, following a procedure to build their own billy cart.

5-6 students will complete the building of their billy carts based on various design briefs.

All students will spend time using tools and hardware in the workshop to create their own vehicles and simple machines and of course everyone (including teachers!) will have the opportunity to jump on the billy carts and burn around our track!

Our qualified teachers are fantastic at tailoring this incursion to suit your personalised focus and each iteration of this incursion can include links to English, Mathematics, Science, History, Design & Technology. It’s also a wonderful addition to any Science Week.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Just a quick note to say how fantastic Ben was yesterday at running the Making Recycled Instruments incursion at St Theresa's.
The kids were so engaged and the content and discussion has acted as a springboard for them to take into further learning.
Thanks once again!

Just wanted to let everyone know how amazed I was with this incursion! It was run by Brent from supreme incursions. He ran an orienteering activity using compasses and a treasure hunt type thing. This was the first time all children have actively participated in an incursion and thoroughly enjoyed it. Brent was so good with the children, he was kind to them and could relate to them well. It was seriously the best incursion we've had to date, and I'm sure all the children would say the same! Can't wait to have Supreme Incursions back next time for another fun day!
