DT Project: Electronics and Funfairs!

Over the past few days Robins have learnt all about electronic circuits. In one of the lessons we looked at Motors, Buzzers, light bulbs in a series circuit with a switch.

Soon, we are going to use this new knowledge in our upcoming DT project, “Making a Funfair Ride”

Today, Robins discussed all about fun fairs.  We had some mixed responses.

Tanatswa & Ava – They are lots of fun 
Paige & Dylan
  – They are eye catching.
Amaya – I went to the funfair yesterday. It was lots of fun.
Seth – I don’t like them. They make me uncomfortable.

We looked at photo’s of different rides and discussed the following:

  • The types of ride you see
  • How the rides move
  • What the rides look like
  • What makes them interesting
  • How you think the rides might work
  • Who the rides might be designed for
  • What materials the rides are made from.

Finally Robins put their thoughts onto paper.

Stay tuned for more work in progress!
