Year 4 have been using their electrical circuit knowledge to build some racing buggies. We started off our work by designing the main circuit. The components included a battery as the power source, a propeller and the leads to complete a circuit.
This set up was then placed on the design for a racing car that we had built. The buggies were able to move with the force created by the propeller moving them forward. The pupils customised their buggies ahead of a grand Year 4 buggies race that took place just before the Easter break.
