D&T - Constructing Fairground rides.

In Year 5, we have been working on a cross-curricular group project where we have researched, designed and now constructed our own fairground rides. We have taken inspiration from several rides from different theme parks around the UK such as Alton Towers, Lightwater Valley and Flamingo Land. Using a range of components such as wood, 3D plastic printed parts, motors and batteries we have created fairground rides that rotate from left to right, spin vertically or spin horizontally. We added signs and designs to our rides to make them appealing to our audience and now we are ready to code our crumble boards and make them move in different directions at different speeds!
