Making an Egg-cellent Vehicle
In Design Technology we have been learning about wheels, axles and chassis'. We looked at two different ways of attaching wheels and axles to a chassis and which worked best, explaining why. Next we explored ways of making our chassis' strong by using layers and thicker materials. Then we used Purple Mash to design the body of our vehicles. We then transfered our designs onto nets, cut them out and assembled the 3D body for our vehicle. After that, we experimented with different ways to add a seat for our chocolate egg to sit and attached our body to the chassis. Finally, we put our chocolate eggs into our vehicles and rolled them down a ramp to measure whos went the furthest.
