Autumn Term

Pneumatic systems and levers/linkages. We made prototypes of pneumatic systems which could remove plastics from the oceans.

Our focus this term has been mechanisms. We have explored and researched levers, linkages and pneumatics. Next, we will be designing our products. Watch this space for the finished designs. 

We made prototypes combining pneumatic systems and levers and linkages. The children explored the output movement of different linkages and levers when the input movement was from a pneumatic system.
