Amazing Engineers!

We have been amazing engineers in Year One... Just like George Stephenson! We designed and made wheeled vehicles. How exciting! We worked with a partner and drew our designs together and talked through our ideas. Then we made a base for our vehicle using a saw, vice, card, dowelling, pegs and wheels. We had to use our brilliant measuring skills to make sure our axles were the correct length! After that, we used lots of reclaimed materials to build our vehicles. Next, we painted our vehicles and added all the finishing touches. Finally, we finished off with a whacky race competition. Using fair testing, we raced our vehicle down a ramp to see which one travelled the furthest. We then evaluated our vehicles and discussed how we could improve them. We had such a fantastic time!
