Mr Zippy's Trainers
This ASE interactive animation looks at materials and their properties and forces and how they are applied to a real life situation. It requires children to choose aspects of trainers that will keep Mr. Zippy's feet dry and help him to run fast. The students then design their own trainer on screen using 'drag and drop', in styles and colours of their choice. The finished trainer can be printed out and displayed.
Please note: From 2021, Adobe has discontinued support for Flash player and as a result some interactive files may no longer be playable. As an alternative method to accessing these files a group of volunteers passionate about the preservation of internet history have created project Ruffle (https://ruffle.rs/). Ruffle is an entirely open source project that you can download and run many interactive Flash resources.
