Lego Drawing Machine

Design, Technology, Art, Maths.

This Lego Drawning maching is designed by Jason Allemann. So it is not my design, it is a great model to help understand what gears do. http://jkbrickworks.com/about/

This is a Design & Technology Art and Math workshop. The children will build this machine in groups of 3, we will make changes and adjustments to the design, let the machine draw. This workshop is great for studying circles learning about circumference, radius and diameter.
