Following on from our lesson about exploring structures and mechanisms. we have now started to design and make our fairground rides.
We have the following design criteria to meet with our designs:
- Use rotary motion
- Turn at a controlled speed using a programmable controller
- Be easy to use
- Be fun and attractive
- Be safe
Here are a few photos of our projects so far. Some of us have had to modify our designs to make the structures more stable and to fix the motor into place.
Sadly, we are currently unable to complete our projects due to the school closure, we hope to be able to complete them by the end of Year 5.
