Testing Wind Buggies
As part of our Science topic of friction, we spent the afternoon testing our wind buggies.
We discussed trial and error and the need to increase air resistance in the sail and reduce dry friction in wheels. We also talked about how we could modify the designs through trial and error. Our young Scientists experimented with changing the shape and size of the sail then observing the effect of changing the wheels
The buggies were made in teams and after the technical modification the children, in true Aquila style, personalised them with names and decoration.
