Lego Technic

What a wonderful afternoon!

Year 4 had a full afternoon with Mr Carlton working on a range of Science, D.T. and computing skills. We used the WeDo app on the I-pads which gave us detailed instructions on how to build a quite complex model using Lego Technic. We then used code to program our models and make them move forward, dragging a sledge behind. We discussed how the friction and air resistance worked in the opposite direction to the pull force exerted by the vehicle. We could alter the speed of the vehicle and how long it travelled for using the app.
