DT Project - Investigating Pulleys

We are using our knowledge of forces to innovate our own machines! We are trying to rescue Shaun the Sheep and his friends, some of whom are trapped in a field and some down a well. We first planned what we had to do, including how to use materials, equipment and processes and started by investigating how pulleys worked.

We will then design our own machines through discussion with our team members and draw up plans with annotated sketches, and cross-sectional and exploded diagrams before building our first prototypes.
