Our CCs Y7 STEM Technology Club for year 7, led by Mr Jardine, has been running since October, They have been making model bridges from limited materials and then testing them to destruction. The best design can hold way over 5KGs, as shown in the pictures.
More recently the club have been making air powered bottle trucks, from card, lemonade bottles and scrap timber. They have made lightweight wheels from thin MDF, drawing them up on CAD software (2D Design) and cutting them out using the laser cutter. Testing begins on Monday 26th March.
After the Easter Holidays, the club will continue with students making an eco friendly device for stacking, storing and transporting soft fruits without damaging them.
