Lesson 1: Exploring Pneumatics
In this practical lesson children investigate and explore different pneumatic systems
Understanding how pneumatic systems work
Knowing that mechanisms are a system of parts that work together to create The movement an object makes when controlled by an input or output (e.g. left, right, up, down). There are four types of motion: reciprocating, oscillating, rotary and linear....
Knowing that pneumatic systems can be used as part of a The parts of an object that move together as part of a machine....
Knowing that they are used in a range of everyday objects
Knowing that pneumatic systems force air over a distance to create movement
