Bundle 1 – Resource cards


Let’s explore the world of mechanical engineering and how to get things moving using a range of simple mechanisms to include pulleys, levers and a wheel and axel. Using these resource cards you can design and make your very own conveyor belt, ferris wheel, robotic arm and electric vehicle and hopefully build enough knowledge to then design your own.


We want to encourage all children to explore and experiment. To become confident with designing and making products using their knowledge of Science, Design and Technology, Engineering and Maths. All projects are aligned with learning objectives across the STEM subjects. The resource cards include pictorial instructions, explaining how to design and make a conveyor belt, a ferris wheel, a robotic are and a vehicle using a simple pulley system, levers and pneumatics.

Suitable for ages 8 – 11
