Year 5 enjoys designing and building their own motorised vehicles

Elmhurst School for Boys

9th May 2017 | Key Stage 2

Year 5 have been designing and building motorised vehicles! This is a collaborative project and as well as using their knowledge of electronics learnt in Science and new woodworking skills in DT, the boys have had to work together and use their critical thinking to problem-solve and overcome problems they come across. These are all skills for the 21st Century Boy. These pictures show 5N testing their vehicles in different surfaces. 5B are about to begin testing this next week. The boys are naturally extremely excited about the grand finale: racing their vehicles!
