Young Engineers

P.4 had 2 visits this month from the young Engineers.

In visit one P.4a talked about going on holiday and how to use a budget. Each group then built a moving conveyor belt for putting their suitcases on at the airport.

For visit two the children learned about exchanging money and about exchange rates for their holiday.  In their groups they built a moving ferris wheel that would be in the theme park on their holiday.

Everything was built with lego and connected to a battery and a motor. The groups had built moving cogs and wheels connected with elastic bands. It was great fun to see everything moving and working.
