On Monday 23rd May, Year 5 students and teachers from JB came to make a mechanical automata product (moving toy) and experience Design Technology at EP.
The students were split into four groups and followed a carousel rotation visiting different specialist areas to complete their moving toy. The programme involved designing a graphic template, making a cam mechanism in the workshop, assembly of components, learning about cams and mechanisms in the real world and evaluating existing mechanical products. The morning was extremely fast paced, exciting and enjoyable for all those involved.
On behalf of Design Technology here at Equine Park, we would like to thank the Year 5 teachers and students for making this a very worthwhile and rewarding event. We look forward to seeing these students when they come to visit us again in Year 6 next year!
