What stops these structures falling down?
D&T Workshop is a major new series of information books devised to inspire primary-age children to investigate, design and make a wide range of products using different technologies like levers, gears, cams, batteries, winding mechanisms, food technology and more.
Each book explores a different set of products and the technology behind them. Children investigate existing products, then carry out focused practical tasks which provide opportunities to learn and practise the necessary skills, e.g. testing alternative designs, building a specific component, or learning to use tools safely. Each book ends with a full-scale design and make activity that allows children to put into practice the skills, knowledge and understanding they have learned.
