Can you save the person at the bottom of the cliff?

The children had to design a winding mechanism and a stretcher to save the boy from the bottom of the cliff. We looked at what happens in a real cliff rescue to get some ideas. The children could choose to use construction kits, lollipop sticks, straws or card. They were left to find out for themselves, to test their models and to get them to work. I was a real test of thinking and perseverance.
