Week Five - Wind Power

Week Five - Wind Power! 


This final week was another engineering challenge - the children had to make wheeled vehicles with masts and sails that could move by the power of  a desktop fan.  We first discussed mobility, balance, weight and height issues, and then the children set to work.  Some fantastical creations were made, but on the test table they didn't necessarily move as well as they could have.  


Learning the valuable lesson that through trying and failing we learn to make things better, the children made improvements to their vehicles and tried again.  


The children have really enjoyed their time in Lego Club and hopefully will keep on making, experimenting and exploring at home.
