The Go Construct K’Nex Challenge is a low cost engineering workshop that takes place during the second half of the academic year and is led by GoConstruct Ambassadors and STEM Ambassadors. It is suitable for Years 5 & 6 with up to 2 classes of 36 children, (maximum of 72 pupils a day). The winning pair of children from each class is nominated and an overall winner will be judged to win prizes. Some schools have an engineer who can be recruited through governors, teachers or parents, or STEMPOINT can help find and allocate an engineer from the STEM Ambassador scheme.

Each of the photographs submitted were studied and after a lengthy discussion 6 winning designs were chosen.
