In the spring term in D&T we have been deigning and making torches. We used our knowledge and skills from science of how to construct a working circuit, conductors and insulators to help us. We started off by thinking carefully about the purpose of a torch, looking at different types of torches and evaluating them.
We made our own switches using our knowledge of conductors and insulators to make a switch for our torches. We tested out our switches by adding them to a circuit.
Having looked at different types of torches we decided which features made an effective torch, we then designed and made our own torches.
