Kirkhill Technology week

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Achievements

On Wednesday 21st November 7 senior pupils went to Kirkhill primary to support the P5, 6 & 7 classes with their technology week activities.

The pupils started each class with a short presentation about “technology @ Charleston” and gave the pupils some idea about what to expect when the move up.  P5 pupils were building a model fairground ride powered by a motor.  Our senior pupils showed them how to build the circuit and fit it into their models.  The P6 pupils were doing a Dyson challenge which involved designing a jet (balloon) powered car and the P7 class were making mechanical toys powered by a motor.

The senior pupils got stuck into doing demonstrations and helped the classes complete each task.  They worked really hard all day and the primary staff were delighted with the level of expertise and patience that the senior pupils demonstrated.  They are a real credit to the Technical department.

Pupils involved: Josh Donaldson 5K, Cameron Keiro-Kirk, 5L, Joshua Wright 5S2, Alex Todd 5S2, Jude Macaskill 5S2, Alex MacAskill 6K, Lewis Macrae 6K
