Year 7 Resistant Materials project for girls

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by plmccahi, Jun 27, 2011.

  1. Hi all,
    I am in need of some inspiration to develop our Y7 Resistant Materials project. I am very open to ideas. However, I am wanting something that involves Acrylic/Wood and maybe with some basic electronics.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
  2. A nightlight? Basic wooden box, acrylic topper (either hand worked or laser cut), and then either a simple LED circuit with a switch, or some kind of LDR instead...
  3. Hi Kevin at Kitronik. We do a colour changing USB lamp kit and a dark activated night light which might fit the bill. If you want to try them out you can get a free sample at http://www.kitronik.co.uk/services/samples/

    Also if you are looking for ideas it might be worth looking at our project gallery http://www.kitronik.co.uk/gallery/picture-gallery/
  4. how about a simple LED safety light/ keyring type thing with acrylic casing/mounting? simple intro to circuits and the girls at my school have LOADS of silly dangly keyring jobbies hanging off their bags [​IMG]
  5. What about doing some glass based work, as jewelery projects, A small microwave kiln and some fixings is all that is required.
