Scrapheap Challenge

Autumn 1

Scrapheap Challenge was designed to begin pupils' knowledge and understanding of electricity. During this project, pupils learnt to identify and name electrical appliances before spending time investigating how to predict and test whether a lamp would light within a circuit. Learning was extended through the identification of materials that were either electrical conductors or insulators. The final outcome linked to design and technology where pupils had to create an 'Iron Man' that had light-up eyes.
