On the 28th of April the school got us 6 boxes from Epro8 that means Engineering Problem Solving and Innovative. Epro8 is a engineering program that will explain how to make things with aluminium bars, Blue and Red Connectors, Small rope, reel, Nails, Wing nuts, Gears, Crank handle, Axles, Pulleys and wheels they also supply you with 2 screwdrivers and a measuring tape. Our teacher separated to groups of 4 except for my group who had 5, My team were me Nino, Julio, Jaeden and Evon.
Our first activity was blowing up a hut but the activity was not about blowing it up a hut but building a hut which didn’t include actually blowing up a hut, The activity wants you to build a hut 700 by 500 and approximately 500mm off the ground and create a roof and it allows 400mm object that can be inside, Then after that you have to build a draw-bridge which you can use the crank handle to control it.
After the blowing up a hut activity our second building a dump truck and the bed and you have to put a lever which will make the bed tilt and pour out trash, Also there was a list of measurements we have to follow. And we had stunt man it was a huggy wuggy plushie my friend brought to school.
The final activity we did was making a playground but our teacher wanted us to do something different instead making a full playground we just had to make 3 things in a playground like slides swings monkey bars all sorts of stuff, My team made a slide, swing and a merry go round.
Epro8 was very fun and interesting with the things we made, I hope we can do Epro8 next year!
