Year 4/5 Programming with Lego Wedo

We have been investigating the best gear combination to make a top spin.

We made a spinning top out of Lego. Using the Lego software, we programmed the handle to stop moving when the top began to spin, we did this using sensors.








We investigated the best gear combination to make the top spin. We used the knowledge we had found out during our investigation to design our own spinning top. We had a competition to see which spinning top would spin for the longest time. We looked at our designs and discussed why some spun for longer than others.







Harlee and Ruby were the winners with their top spinning for 30 seconds. well done!
