Cognitive competences

Every minute of every day, we use logic and our cognitive competences to understand the world around us. They help us solve complex problems, find solutions, remember stuff and learn new things.

Problem-solving: The activity provides defined and achievable challenges, and learners are still welcome to identify other problems to solve.

Iteration and examination: Learners have multiple iterations and must make changes to their designs. They test different solutions and ideas, analyse and draw conclusions based on their findings.

Ground principles for motion: Learners will become familiar with the forces that affect the motion of an object, such as gravity, potential energy, weight, wheel diameter and friction.
