Most of the Biggies have now finished their marvellous machines. They took the basic cams and added some artistic flair.
Some of the class needs to go to the Kilsyth Academy Maths competition this morning so they need a wee bit more time to finish (now added to the video).
We also took some short videos on the machines in action.
We now have some moving machines, hopefully get them all running and make them beautiful this afternoon.
The Biggies are spending the day tinkering and engineering. Already we have used our maths skills, measuring, dividing and knowing about the properties of shape; Our problem solving; practical skills and helping each other when two hands are not enough. Our next steps will involve more problem solving and practical skills to get our cams and cam folders sorted and finally we will use some creative thinking to finish our models off.
