Future Engineers?

Mr Davidson's class have once again shown how amazing they are by tackling their biggest challenge yet...building a fully functional funfair built entirely out of Lego WeDo and programmed to move using software through a MacBook Pro. Each week we are set challenges that will help us overcome future problems in the project. It doesn't stop there though each time we build a gearing system or camshaft, we have to then describe how it works and also reconfigure it to change its behaviour.

We have take what we have learned so far to make a drumming monkey, this was a great way of showing us how all the gears and camshafts worked all at once. We have also been learning the value of teamwork and collaborative thinking too, without these skills we would find this project incredibly difficult.

Watch this space as more of this exciting project comes to life...
