Harvest Pumpkin Drop 2023

An exciting AIS traditional event in October is our Pumpkin Drop Challenge, with all the Year 6 British and 5th Grade American, Canadian and German children. Working in international groups students challenge themselves to make a protective box, with the idea of making the Pumpkin survive a drop from the 3rd floor of the school. We experiment and use lots of different materials to surround it in the hope it survives the drop. The Pumpkin Drop is a fun experience for everyone involved. It is always a SMASH HIT!
