Billy Carts

Build, test and drive in our engaging and longest running incursion

RECOMMENDED FOR FOUNDATION - YEAR 12

Billy carts is easily adaptable and will vary depending on your focus.  Students might like to investigate the different properties and materials of types of vehicles or race against the clock as they follow a procedure or a design brief.

We have a couple of high energy children who were completely engaged in all of the activities. They were open ended and engaging for all abilities and interests. Everything was wonderful - I have recommended you to all of our staff. Thanks!

The students loved Brent's presentations. They were thrilled to see him a second time ( 1st time 2 months ago). Not only did he keep the activities and presentation interesting, he also built rapport with the children and even remembered student names from last incursion.
