Mechanical Dragons

The children have just finished a project making moving dragons based on popular Victorian games called Automatons. They designed their dragon’s and then used cranks to turn circular motion into linear motion. They worked incredibly hard to make their moving dragon’s and we then shared them with Year 3 and did a question and answer session. The children were articulate and demonstrated their work exceedingly well. Here are some of their designs.
