Lego workshop

on April 6, 2017

On Wednesday Ms. Cully’s class went to a Lego workshop in the P.E. hall with Rob and Niamh from Learnit. We talked about the different types of engineers. We learned that engineers design, build and test.

First we got into pairs. We had a box with all the different parts of Lego that we needed to make a catapult. We worked together and followed the instructions carefully. The main parts of the catapult were the pivot point, the load and the effort.

How far the load went depended on where the pivot point was placed. The further away the pivot point was placed from the load, the further the load went. We used rubber rings as our load.

We had so much fun learning about how to build with Lego. It was great working as a team and that made the experience even better. We would love to go to a Learnit summer camp!
