Term 6 - Scream Machine

Roll up, roll up! For a magical mystery tour to soak up the unique sights, smells and sounds of the fair. Learn about the science behind rollercoasters and write poems that are shaped like a loop the loop. With Dreamland on our doorstep, our intention is to fire imaginations through real life experiences, right here in Thanet. Testing, testing! Time for some mini investigations. Cam mechanisms, pendulums, pulleys and prototypes. Let’s go behind the scenes to see forces at work. Good news, the engineers at Scream Towers love your work and want you to build a death defying new ride for a theme park. Make a working fairground ride with moving parts.
