In Design and Technology, Year 3 have been designing, making and evaluating their very own robot with movement mechanisms. They were inspired to design their very own robot while we were reading our class novel ‘The Iron Man’. We started by looking at a range of different movement mechanism to understand how they work. We then created at least two design ideas for our robots. After that, we worked hard to improve our design ideas to fit our success criteria before finally making our robots. This was tricky because we had to use a range of materials and tools which we were unfamiliar with! When we had finished our designs, we carefully evaluated them against our success criteria.
