simple paper and card automata I am a teacher, will this book help? Your pupils can make fantastic automata from recycled household items, paper card and wood. This new book "How to Design and make Simple Automata" has 80 A4 pages and over 270 black and white illustrations and it explains clearly and simply how to design and make automata that fulfill the requirements for Key Stage 2 Design and technology, units; 3C moving monsters, unit 5C moving toys and 6C Fairgrounds. It completely de-mystifies the mechanical and engineering skills needed to complete the assignments.

Teaching and Learning Resources from Diane Hawkins Unit 3C - Moving Monsters (ICT Unit 3A - Combining text and graphics) About the Unit This unit helps to develop children's understanding of control through investigating simple pneumatic systems and designing and making a model of a monster that has moving parts controlled by pneumatics. This could be linked to stories or poems, or another purpose. Kinetic Mechanized Toys and Automata. Automata Arthur Higgin's Mechanical Art Some "abstract" and stylized mechanical art. I like Arthur's Butter Rocker . Automates-Passion a French site featuring very elaborate and beautiful animata in the Victorian tradition.

Simple Mechanics Cams The basic principle of the cam is to turn a circular motion into a linear one. This is referred to as reciprocating movement. In it's simplest form you turn a handle to make something move up and down. OBJECTIVE: 4 Kidz Parents & Teachers: Lambuel crafts are a great activity to help keep children busy learning about Jesus.

The cam rotates about this point (shown with a white dot on the diagram) and in paper models this is usually a rectangular tube, and in wood automata it is usually a cylindrical dowel. The further off-center it is, the more movement you will produce. The motion is a steady and constant up-down motion. 2) Drop/snail cam: This cam can only be rotated one way otherwise the mechanism would get stuck.

Teachers Making Wire Automata and Soft Circuits On Monday at The Exploratorium Tinkering Studio, we met with about 20 teachers, mostly from the museum’s Teacher Institute network, building on some excitement that kept its mailing list buzzing for a few days after Maker Faire. Among those present, we had everything from pre-K to high school teachers, physics to art to biology. The teachers ostensibly came to discuss bringing the Maker Movement into their schools, but as all these teachers love to work with their hands, we happily kept the talking to a minimum and spent most of our four hours together working on projects while we continued the conversation, just as our maker forebears did at their quilting bees. Wire Automata Ryoko, Lianna, and Ryan of The Exploratorium Tinkering Studio taught a room full of teachers the basics of soldering and mechanical movements with the wire automata project.

Ten Good Video Sources for Science Students and Teachers One of the great things about teaching today is the wealth of educational videos that are available on the web. No longer do we have to flip through catalogs, order a VHS cassette, wait for it to arrive, and hope that it is as good as the catalog made it sound. Now we can quickly access and screen educational videos. In fact, there is so much available that the challenge is sifting through it all.
