Primary 5 have had an excellent week with Engineer ‘n’ our Lives.
We participated in four activities guided by experts from the programme all with the theme of The Victorians.
1 The machine – in small groups we had to act out the movements and sounds of a sweet making machine. This was mechanical engineering.
2 Toys R Us -children had to upscale a drawing of a dolls house. This was design engineering.
3 Smug or smog – children worked in pairs to create chimney models using newspaper and tape. This was construction engineering.
4 Metal top trumps – this was metallurgical engineering.
Here are some photos of our experiences.
