Slingshot cars

The children in Year 4 enjoyed a DT morning on Friday, beginning a project all about cars! They discussed the history of cars and how cars have changed over time. They then spent the morning making their chassis for a slingshot car. This required the children to build the framework, attach their axles and wheels and create the mechanism for the slingshot. The children also got the opportunity to use the glue gun to attach their slingshot mechanism to their chassis. Next week, the children will design and make a suitable car body shape which limits air resistance so their car can travel the furthest. They will then have the chance to test out their cars and challenge their classmates to see whose car meet the design brief the best!
