Machines from the Middle Ages
Machines from the Middle Ages and how to make them
This free workshop is for those involved in STEM enrichment in schools looking for new activity ideas. In this session we will look at different wood technology processes and practices that were used in the Middle Ages. Participants will undertake a number of short practical activities, which will allow them to construct simple wooden machines, using nothing but wood. As part of this, the compressive, tensile and shear characteristics of softwoods will be explored.Free packs of materials will be available.
Building on the recent STEM clubs CPD event this meeting is co-ordinated by David Kirkham from Newmarket College. This is an opportunity to network with like-minded teachers and STEM providers in the area.
This workshop is being hosted by The STEM Clubs Network. The STEM CLUB Network is an affiliation network which gives schools to access the very latest in best practice information, professional advice, shared resources, key contacts and personal support.
