Goblin Kit Car
This year as part of our Pupil Equity Funding we purchased a kit go-cart for the children to build together and further develop their STEAM learning as well as their skills in curiosity, problem solving, social skills and imagination. We hope to keep you up to date of our progress below……
A big thank you to Gary MacKintosh, H.I.S. who has provided a large box of tools required for our build!
We continued our kit car build today and look how far we’ve got. It’s helped having a print out of the instructions!
Today the children ensured all the work they had done previously was secure by tightening the bolts and preparing for the front wheels to go on (hopefully next week.) It’s getting lots of excitement around the school.
Over the last two weeks we’ve worked to get the wheels on and the steering column. We’ve also had to tighten up the bolts and secure the frame. All parents were delighted to see our progress at our recent parent meetings.
Our kit car now looks like it will go! With four wheels and a steering column all built up. This week, we had a few more spanners so were able to tighten up the bolts, check the instructions and work together to make real progress.
This week we put the pins in the wheels axles and finished securing the steering column. Next week we’ll begin to look at the breaks.
Today we assembled the brake caliper and throttle.
