Year 5 Engineering Week

This week has been such a fun and exciting week. You have all worked really hard making parachutes to protect an egg from cracking.  You have done a fantastic job as an engineer designing, creating, evaluating, redesigning etc.  Here are some pictures to show your work.

  1. 1.An engineer is a person who designs and builds something to solve a problem.An engineer has to ask himself three question which are What is the problem that needs to be solved?, Who has the problem that needs to be solved? and Why is this problem important to solve?
    2.There are many different kind of engineers including:
    1.Biomedical – Biomedical engineers study biology and medicine.
    2.Bioengineering and Biochemical – Bioengineers study live system and study the safety of food supplies.
    3.Environmental – Environmental engineers study the way to protect
    the environment.
    4.Marine and Ocean – Marine and Ocean engineers design ocean vehicles, marine propulsion systems and many more to include.
    5.Petroleum – Petroleum study the earth trying to find oil and petrol.
    3.Our final design was a bin bag with a big surface area, letting in enough air resistance, making the parachute fall slower.Also we had a short string attached to the plastic cup and the parachute. At the bottom of the cup we put bubble wrap as cushioning which prevented the egg from damage.
    4.During the test I found that holding the parachute from the same height of my partner was quite challenging.Also I found that tying
    the string to tissue paper was challenging as it was very delicate and could rip easily.The most challenging thing was when me and my group had to cut the same size and length of the material so it could be a fair test.
    5.My favourite part was when we dropped our parachute from the staircase and see if the egg got damaged.Also my favourite part was when we designed, planed and presented our parachute.

  3. An engineer is a person who makes certain things or studys on them. Engineers ask them self three questions. Why this should be made, who does it affect and how does it work.???
    The different types of engineers are Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Management, and Geotechnical.
    My final design was a big rectangle piece of paper(which was purple.) I found it hard to make the parachute because we used a larger parachute and we did everything independently. I mad a parachute before but it was made differently than the way we did it in school. Also it was quite hard to make the vancuam that we had to do.I learnt how to do hole punch using the hole punch by myself ; with a little help from Mrs Mahtani. I really enjoyed making the parachute and remodeling the vacuam.
    THANK YOU FOR AN EGG-SELLENT ENGINERING WEEK MRS MARTHANI AND MISS BHANDAL.

  4. An engineer is someone who fixes things.
    5 types of engineering:
    Soft ware
    Computer
    Civil
    Mechanic
    Chemistry
    My final design was a bin bac with cotton wool.
    I found throwing the bag in the air hard because I neede it to catch enough air and also keeping the string the same length for all of them.
    I found the egg investigation outside fun and I really enjoyed it.

  5. 1)An engineer is a person who wants to find out how things work.
    2)civil ,nuclear,Eletrical,mechanical and software.
    3)our final design was when we cut the handles of
    4)what I found challenging was when we designed our parachutes.
    5)I enjoyed when we had to drop the eggs

    • Adam, I am sure you did other things to your final design rather than just cutting off the handles. Think about the length of string and also the protection inside the box.

  6. 1.)A engineer is a person who solves problems and a person who wants to know how or why things work.
    2)civil,electrical,mechanical.chemical and also, nuclear.

  7. I found attaching the string hard because they kept and falling of .
    I enjoyed when we went outside to drop the final design of our parachute.

  8. 1)An engineer is someone who wants to know how and why something works.
    2) Machanical, Eletrical,computer,Chemical and Civil.
    3) A blue bag a bin bag and string.
    4) The strings were the hardest part.
    5)I enjoyed doing the tricky part.

    Thanks

  9. 1) an engineer Is a person that designs and builds stuff and solve stuff.
    2) our final design was a parachute that was meant to fly but it never.

  10. 1)An engineer is a person who solves problems.
    2) civil chemical software mechanical nuclear.
    3) are final design was the carrier bag, because it was the most effective material.
    4) I found challenging the final design because it was a little hard.
    5) I enjoyed when we put the egg on the cube and threw them into the ground.

  11. 1) It’s a person who wants to find out how or why something works.They also solve people’s problems.

    2)software,mechanical,chemical,nuclear and civil.

    3)My group used a plastic blue bag which had 40cm tied to it.

    4)I was struggling to tie the string in the right places.

    5)I enjoyed when the egg cracked,it was very funny!

  12. An engineer Is a person who wants to know how and why something work and a person who does problem solving.

    5 types of engineering:
    Civil
    Mechanical
    Electrical
    Chemical
    Nuclear

    Dawson did a plastic bag design and fatimah did a bin bag design.
    What we found challenging is trying to slow down the parachute and get enough air resistance. I enjoyed the egg investigation.

  14. A engineer isa person who builds something like building and a class room an chocolate there are types of enigeer . There are civil computer software electrical mechianal and many more. Our final design was a carrier bag it wasn’t successful because the egg crack and it didn’t have more air in. I find hard was the carrier bag.

  15. 1)An engineer is a person who wants to know how and why things work
    2)mechanical engineer ,civil engineer,software engineer, biological engineer , chemistry engineer
    3) we had a matalan bag , 30cm string

    • 4) I found making the parachute hard because when we were cutting the plastic bag it kept going different way which was very hard.
      5) I enjoyed testing the parachute and viewing other parachute that my class mates made

  16. An engineer is a person who wants to know who and why some thing is.
    5 types of engineers
    .airo-space
    .chemical
    .mechanical
    .electrical
    .software

    Our final design was a bin bag some string and a cube net and it was successful because it had enough air resistance going into the surface area

    What we found challanging was building the the parachute over and over again.

    We engoid building the parachute for the envestagation even though it was very challenging

    Civil,macanical,electrical,chemical and software
    Our final design an Asda bag with 30cm string.

    • You need to answer in more detail about your final design. Think about the protection of your egg and the shape of your bag. Also answer the rest of the questions please Momina.

    Nuclear
    Our final design was a new look plastic bag, which was attached to 4 30cm strings. At the bottom we had a cube ,which contained the egg and bubble wrap.
    We found attaching the strings challenging because when we attached the strings the had different sizes so we had to do it again. We enjoyed making and testing the parachutes to find the best material.

  19. 1:) a engineer is a person who designs and creates objects that we use in everyday life and a person who wants know how or why something is working.
    2:) software engineers,nuclear engineers,biological engineers,computar engineers, chemical engineers.
    3:) my final design was a bin bag as a parachute and 30cm length string.
    4:) i found making a cube box very because I am no good at origami.
    5:) when we tested the parachute if the egg could brake or not

  20. 1) An engineer is a person that wants to know what or how things work.

    2) Mechanical,Chemical,Civil And Elictrical.

    3)Our final design was a blue cariel bag , long string .

    4)The challenging part was when we went out to try our egg parachute out .

    5)I enjoyed everything in this week it was so fun

    Thank you Mrs Khan :)

    • You welcome Alesha. I’m glad you enjoyed it however I believe there should be a big thank you to Mrs Kendell and Miss Redhead for all the planning. Hope you have a lovely birthday and enjoy your weekend.

  21. An engineer is a person who wants to know how and why things work and they usually solve problems.There is mechanical engineering civil engineering chemical engineering aerospace engineering and many more.Our final design was a new look bag with 30 cm string and a box attached to the string filled with bubble wrap.
    What I found challenging is designing our final parachute as it took a lot of hard work to make but luckily we made it .Eventhough designing our final parachute was difficult we found it very fun as it took a lot of what work and effort to make and it ended out great.
