Engineers Week Resources
Engineers Week is always one of our favourite times of the year and our annual Ten Stations Challenge is open to all primary schools.
If you can’t come to us, take the Engineers Week Quiz from the comfort of the classroom or home.
There are some more activities to try below.
A cam repeats a circular motion to create a linear movement. Can your students design and make a toy for a young child using a cam or cams based around a picture/story book?
Paper Plane Investigation
This activity has many cross curricular elements. It covers reading & understanding instructional writing; design and technology skills in paper folding; understanding forces and mathematical measuring; and data collection and finding averages!
Paper Water Flowers
Children can make a paper flower using scrap paper. Fold the petals into the centre, place them onto a surface of water and watch the petals unfurl. An animation using simple science.
Optical Illusion Card
This is a neat way of using the power stored in a twisted elastic band. Once the band is released, a quick burst of energy reveals the hidden content of a book.
Wonky Shelf Marble Run
Of course our marble run had to be book themed. Watch as gravity and a few uneven shelves work their fun!
