Waterwheel Experiment 29/03/21
As a lead off from British Science Week, our Year 11 students capitalised on a hands-on experience in building a functioning waterwheel. A waterwheel is a machine used for converting energy of flowing or falling water into useful energy sources. The students were provided with all the materials needed for the construction and utilised their creative skills to build their own waterwheel without following any blueprints.
This expanded their understanding of how energy is generated in some parts of the world in a similar fashion and the origin of the automation of work.
