4 Red Engineering week

What a fantastic week of perseverance (all children continued to try, wanting to make the best boat)

Below is a video showcasing this weeks learning.

Please share a comment about your learning and progress, what you found difficult and what you’ve learnt.

  1. After evaluating, we created our second boat which was more successful because our first boats porpellor was not under the water because we did not angle the lollipop sticks under the water so are boat did not get to a to b.

  2. This week I have learnt about boats.my evaluation is that on my other boat it was not balanced but my new boat floated🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻⛵️🚤🛳

  3. Our task was to design a boat which moved from A to B and which was fast .
    To begin, our first prototype we designed It,tested , redesigned it and then tested It again.After evaluating,we created our second boat which was more successful because It was less heavy ,had a small bottle and,the propeller wasn’t in the water and It went backwards in stead because I twisted my propeller the wrong way.

  4. Our task was to design a boat which went from A to B.
    To begin,our first prototype we tested which materials would be the best to use for our boats.
    After evaluating, we created our second boat which was more successful because
    the propellor was more secure.

  5. Our task was to design a boat which cuddunt sink and but can float. To begin, our first prototype we had to plan it how the Boat Luke’s like.

  6. To begin, our first prototype we used a plastic milk bottle because when we tested our object other items floated but the plastic floated and was waterproof when other floated ones and non floated ones were not waterproof except the plastic so we used a plastic bottle and we decorated it and created a propeller and then we decorated it and added wings to glide but that didn’t go so well.

  7. Our tast was to design a boat which go fast,strong and go to A to B.
    To begin, our first prototype we labled our boat then made the boat and test it.

  8. I learnt that boats they need to not be heavy or it will sink. You have to make shore that the propeller has to go under the water so it can move. You have to make shore that your boat will balance. To begin, our first photo type we design boats in are books.

  9. Our task was to design a boat which was stable and strong,light and secure.After evaluating,we created our second boat which was more successful because (reflecting on Latayas boat) she had used a bigger bottle therefore it was heavier but we used a smaller bottle which was lighter of course which made it float.

  10. Our task was to design a boat which has a propeller.
    To begin,our first prototype it didn’t work because I didn’t sucure my propeller.

  11. Our task was to design a boat which has endurance,being stable and can float to A to B.
    To begin,our first prototype it never turned out great because it had a lot of weight
    and had a large hole in the middle so it unfortunately it sank under the water.
    After evaluating,we created our second boat which was more successful because it
    never had a large hole in the middle and it floated better then the first boat.

  12. Our task was to design a boat which was strong and that could move.
    To begin, our first prototype didn’t have to be brilliant it was just a test to see how we can improve our second boat.

  13. I learnt that the propellor has to be under the water for the boat to go but no one in my class realised that.I made progress by working together in a team and making sure everyone gets to create at least one part of the boat.I found the sticking the propellor the most difficult as it would go off every time I tried to stick it onto the string.

  14. Our task was to design a boat which was strong stable and could float also to make our boats travel a distance inside of a tub from A to B.
    To begin our first prototype we needed to plan our boats and label what materials were needed to make our boats and also labelled features of our boat.
    After evaluating, we created or second boat which was more sucsessful because it was more stable and had more speed and velocity because we improved our propellers learning from our mistakes that we did with our first prototype

  15. Our task was to design a boat which could travel from A to B and which had endurance.
    To begin, our first prototype we experimented then we designed our boat, after we made our first boat and my boat was not sturdy.
    After evaluating, we created our second boat which was more successful because it floated from A to B.

  16. I’ve’ learnt how engineers work.I think I made progress by making a new boat and designing it differently and I think i tried really hard with my team.I found making the propellor hard.

  17. Our task was to design a boat which couldn’t sink be balanced and to go to A to B.
    To begin,our first prototype we design in our notebooks and then we used materials because we had an experiment which materials were suitable for water.

  18. our first task was to design a boat which was strong and balanced.
    to begin our first prototype we tested our boats but some sank and some boat tilted .

  19. Our task was to design a boat which floated, that travelled from A to B, and had endurance. To begin, our first prototype it was bad because I cut a whole in it so it sank. After evaluating, we created our second boat which was more successful because I never cut it open, it was secure and stable.

  20. I learnt that if your boat has a hole your boat will not float and we also
    Design a boat we went outside to test are boat s it did t float
    Then the second time it started float

  21. Our task was to create a boat⛵️🚤🛥 which was strong,fast and waterproof however the results for me,my prototype and my boat was that my prototype was faster than the second one because it traveled from A to B which was something my first model of the boat didn’t, as the propellor was not in the water.I learnt from some of the experiments that plastic was the best waterproof and strong material to use.

  22. Our task was to create a boat which can travel from one end to another and which would float. To begin, our first prototype had to be stable and strong. After evaluating, we created our second boat which was more successful because it was smaller, lighter and stronger than our first ones. 🚣

  23. After evaluating, we created our second boat which was more successful because our first prototype tilted because some of the items on the boat with weren’t equal on both sides.
