Engineering!

As part of science week, we have been building cars with motors!

Throughtout science week, we all worked together to build and then wire up our cars.  We had to use our initiative and resilience to build the car out of wood, construct the vehicle with pulleys, wheels and axles and then wire the vehicle up.  The piece de resistance was the switch, which when wired up correctly, allowed us to drive the vehicles forward and in reverse!

We were very lucky to have help with this from an engineer who helped us deal with any mechanical failures and, by the end, every car worked (even if some were a bit unreliable!!)
