Pneumatic and Hydraulic Workshop In P5/6

P5/6 had a fantastic Science workshop led by Mrs Sherard from SERC.

We learned about pneumatic and hydraulics in a practical, fun way. It taught us a lot more about solids, liquids and gases.

 We tested compressing solids, liquids and gasses.

Then we made an tested a simple pneumatic system.

We added water to our system to make a hydraulic system which we had to bleed and test.

Mrs Sherard showed us a model bat whose mouth opened and closed with a simple pneumatic system.

We each got our own materials to design and make our own models.

We had a great time.

These are Mrs Sherard’s examples we will post ours when they are fully designed.
