Popular mechanics: Becoming a designer of machines
This unit is designed for children 9-11 years old.
The final objective of the workshop is to transform a cardboard box in a mechanical toy. Each participant bring their own cardboard box, chooses a character and decides its motion. Then each participant experiments with other toys to determine the mechanical elements needed for the toy, including the shape of the cam. Finally each participant creates a toy. At each step in the creation, the participants can use the EDP process to improve their toy and adjust the motion with the cam. At the end of the workshop, the participant takes away their toy.
