STEM Go kart update

This week we built the motor cage, attached the motor belt to the rear axle and attached the motor cage to the chassis. We worked well as a team to communicate and problem solve. Harry solved the issue of attaching the belt to the axle and the whole team confidently used spanners to secure the bolts. Next time we plan to insert the seat and attach the rollcage to the go kart chassis.

The Momo Challenge

There has been a lot of media attention given to the ‘Momo’ challenge. The link below offers advice and answers some key questions you may have.

In addition to this advice we would encourage families to have video games and screens used in shared family areas so you can see what kids are doing. This also means they can talk to you more easily about anything that upsets them.

In Roblox, selecting the Restricted setting for your child’s accounts ensures they can only access games that have been checked for appropriateness.

On Youtube select restricted mode so that children cannot access content flagged by the YouTube community as potentially sensitive.

In the event of your child feeling vunerable or distressed by seeing inappropriate material online, there are a number of organisations that can offer direct support to you and your child.
