Middle school's DT project this half term has been 'a slingshot car'.
We have explored the history of cars and how their appearance has changed over time. We have looked at how a car pieces together with a chassis, axel and wheels. Finally, we were ready to start creating our own!

Children had the opportunity to (very carefully!) use a hot glue gun to piece together the chassis of their cars. Once they had done this, they attached their wheels to the axels and attached the slingshot hook. 

We began designing what the body of our car should look like, considering factors such as aerodynamics and air resistance with our body shape. 

Children are very excited to begin building the body of their cars and watch them roll!
