Grade 9: Engineering for Development

On Friday 8th November Grade 9 scientists were at the school farm making two pedal powered machines, one to irrigate crops and the other to power a blender to make smoothies. Concepts relating to energy transformation had been introduced by trainee teacher Aj.Max in a recent lesson and the students now learnt how to apply this knowledge to these two practical problems.

The experience of this session will fuel their further inquiry, not only into the Physics involved but also into issue of how these technologies could be of use to people who live ‘off the grid’ and in developing societies.

Thanks to the Traidhos farm, Aj.Max , Round Square exchange student Millie, and Aj.Simon for making this fantastic learning experience possible
