Hydraulics - Challenge 1

Cost: $35 per student (Min. 15)

Time: 3 Hours


In these sessions children work in teams using a simple engineering design process to address an hydraulics challenge.


Groups will be asked to solve a particular problem to work through and decide how they can solve it using the equipment available.


For example – the task is to design and build a machine that can take an object and lower it at least 5cm horizontally, then move it from the platform.


Using brainstorming, pictures and drawings before eventual machine building and testing, children will work, step by step, through the engineering process.
