To start our new STEAM topic called ‘Formula Ethara,’ the Year Four students were set a task to design and create their own speed car. At the start of the week during our Science lessons the students were taught about aerodynamics, air resistance and friction.
Using this knowledge, they designed their car on paper ready to create their car model out of wood. Then the students were shown two different types methods to join wood (the butt joint and the miter joint), and using this skill they then went to create some wonderful designs which will be on show at the showcase in December.
