Surviving the apocalypse STEMClub Sessions
For the past few years the world has been ravaged by a vicious disease…not the one you might be thinking of…this one is much worse! This new disease, known as HAVOC, has infected millions of people, making them develop strange behaviours, including a tendency to be a little bit bitey!
A small band of elite scientists, codenamed STEMClub, i.e. you, have survived the initial apocalypse and escaped to a secret laboratory in the woods outside Cambridge. Unfortunately the lab has not been used for a while, and you had to escape quickly, so there are not as many essential provisions in your hide-out as you might want.
Can you work together to complete challenges to demonstrate your resilience, creativity and scientific skills and help others to survive the apocalypse?
Today we will be looking at:
Protect yourself – neck protection
Infection with HAVOC causes some strange behaviour – including a tendency to bite anyone who gets too close. Investigate the properties of some common materials and use your creativity to come up with the perfect neck protection. Test your designs to see if they will withstand a ‘bite’.
