This year’s VIBE Festival activity was titled Planking The VIBE. It was set up so that groups of students were challenged to construct a specific object from a pile of planks. Planks are all the same size and weight and come from a Melbourne Company called Green hat Workshop.
Working in small teams and within a tight timeframe, students were challenged to construct a bridge, a face, a word with minimum length, and copy a picture from a card.
The collaboration between students from our school and visitors they may not have met before was wonderful.

Our intrepid judges would issue the challenge, start the timer, then make structures of their own, in between checking out the action and warning of the impending end of time. Thanks Angus and Lach!
The last devious test set up by the judges was to construct a word to describe the session of more than 6 letters. We had some creative solutions:
Well done everyone. Thanks to Cam at Green Hat Workshop for suggesting the timed tasks.
