Today we had our third challenge for our topic called "Make It Work!" The challenge was called "A Bit Dicey!" For this challenge we had to balance six dice on a Popsicle stick in a vertical tower and make them balance for three seconds without them falling off. We had one minute to complete the challenge.
I did not succeed in this challenge apart from the practice, where I was able to balance all six for seven seconds. Some of the strategies that were used for this were:
Holding the stick to the side of your mouth.
Biting down hard on the stick to keep it in place.
Closing your lips around the stick for extra security/support.
Sitting down on a chair instead of standing up.
Something that I would change for next time would be to try different strategies in the competition each time one idea failed.
