Term 6 DT Project!

 

DESIGN YOUR OWN WIND TURBINE! 

 

Follow the slides and learn all about wind power and how it creates renewable energy. Wind turbines use wind to generate electricity.

 

Your task is to design a wind turbine that would spin effectively when a hairdryer is blowing air against it.

If you can find resources, have a go at building your design and see if it can lift a plastic cup off the floor when attached by string.

OTHER ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES

The Ickabog Illustration Competition- a very exciting opportunity!

 

JK Rowling is giving you the opportunity to have your illustrations published in her new book 'The Ickabog'.

 

There will be a new chapter published each week and you will be given ideas for the possible illustrations which you can then draw and submit after reading it. 

 

You can submit an entry for each chapter, if you want to. Around 34 illustrations will be selected to be published when the book is printed. Good luck Year 4!
