Week 6: Lesson Instructions for 10th Feb 2011

In my absence, please do the following:
  1. For those of you who are still NOT 'Followers' of this blog, please do so, as it would help me to keep track of who you guys are.
  2. In your Toy Design groups, work on the next part of your Design Journals, i.e. version 2 of your designs. In the previous lessons, each team have came up and selected the main idea that the team would want to work on for the actual design/s. For this lesson:
    • Work on refining on version 1 of your toy designs. These may include improvements to how your toys could be made from either of the following materials: Cardboard, Compressed foams (pink or/and blue), Pine or/and Balsa wood, Acrylic sheets
    • Also work on how you can incorporate simple mechanisms or electronics into your designs. The 4 key mechanical components that I would be touching on for my next lessons on Friday are: Levers, Gears, Cams and Pulleys.
    • For help in understanding Basic Mechanical systems, you can refer to the following sites:
    • For help in understanding Basic Electronics, you can refer to the following site:
      • Electronics (Note that I am only going to cover basics of electronics such as batteries, switches, bulbs and buzzers for your project)
