Discovering How Different Forces Work to Make a Toy Move

We looked at how we could design a toy vehicle that would move using magnets.

 

We knew that opposite poles of magnets attract and the sameĀ  poles repel so we were able to place a magnet inside our vehicle and use another magnet to move it forwards or backwards.

 

 

 

 

Some of us also looked at how cogs move and we started to think about how we could use this in a moving toy design.

We took a quiz to test our knowledge of magnetism and were pleased with our results.
