As part of our DT learning, we will be designing, making and evaluating our very own wands with an electrical element. Before we could begin our designs, first we had to learn about how a simple circuit works. We watched some videos about electricity, discussed what we know about it, and made some of our own simple circuits using buzzers and light bulbs.
Using our knowledge of electricity, we created mood boards to draw inspiration from in order to design a magical wand. After this, we designed our own wands so that they are functional, unique and aimed at an audience. We have now begun to decorate our wands and we will be adding the electrical element next week.
