Sliders, Wheels and Axels

This STEAM activity gives pupils the opportunity to explore engineering through the design and creation of their own moving part aircraft. Pupils have the opportunity to work as part of a group to carefully design their own aircraft and think hard about how to create moving sliders, wheels and axels, before creating their final product. This resource is part of a series of STEAM activities produced by Rolls Royce and covers the design, make, evaluate and technical knowledge sections of the KS1 Design Technology Curriculum.
