Class 4’s pneumatics project

Today class 4 were introduced to their new DT/Primary Engineering project that has been set by Bishops Castle Community College. The challenge is to design, develop and build a machine which features pneumatic based moving parts. The machine must be designed to help the construction industry in some way. To start our projects, we all had a go at creating our own pneumatic systems, using syringes and tubing. The children looked at the differences between the two different sized syringes and we discussed how these pneumatic systems can be used in their own projects. The teams have started to think about their ideas and the planning process has begun. I cannot wait to see what class 4 come up with after hearing their fantastic ideas!
