Making Security Alarms

In Design Technology Year 6 have been investigating complex electrical systems. They have been working in teams to design a security alarm system for the British Museum to protect their priceless Egyptian artefacts. This has involved using series and parallel circuits, push to break and push to make switches, buzzers and bulbs as well as cutting and stripping their own wires and working out how to join the components together. Finally each team had to produce a working mock up of their system.

While this was challenging it was also great fun!
