Step 3 - Engineering 2022

steps.jpg

All classes took part in Engineers Week in March.
Rockets, boats, bridges and wind turbine were built.
We will use this approach from now on with Science Week, Tech Week and Space Week.

Wind Turbine

Brief (5-6th classes):

  • Can we light up more than one LED light from provided wind turbine?

  • Define a fair test (lung capacity vs hair dryer is an example of an unfair test).

  • Use geometry to find the centre of a circle and the centre of gravity of a disc.

  • Determine results. No design managed to light 2 lights, including the teacher's. 15 models were designed and built; some were not completed for testing.

  • Reflection: in future, more time should be allowed for testing.
