Thursday 25th April 2012 – Year 5 Primary Engineering Project at Swanmore College

On Thursday I accompanied 20 year 5 children to Swanmore College where they took part in the Primary Engineering Project. The project is run by the college for its local feeder primary schools; 4 of which are taking part this year. The children worked in teams of 4 to design and make their own race car! They had to build everything from scratch, including the chassis and all the electronics to make the car move both forwards and backwards. The really exciting parts were making the body of the car on a special machine to form the plastic into the correct shape. They also designed and made their own stickers to decorate and personalise their cars. The whole afternoon was finished off with a series of races. The children all had a fantastic afternoon and have come back to school with their cars, which will be shared in assembly this Friday. One lucky team will also be taken through to the final where they will compete against all the other schools to hopfully be crownded winner. I have yet to decide who this lucky team will be…!
