Motoring Ahead with P7
The bright sparks in Primary 7 have been learning all about electricity. We have made simple circuits, series circuits and parallel circuits to light more bulbs than Lurgan Christmas lights. James Connor from Sentinus visited each class and showed us how to make an air powered balloon car. It is very likely that by the time P7 are doing their driving tests most cars will be powered by electricity so we investigated motors and discovered how they work. Using a battery pack we swapped balloon power for a motor to power our cars. There was no stopping us as we experimented with 4 wheel drive, double battery packs and extra motors to refine our designs. We also had fun with solar power and spinning magnets. Watch out Elon Musk - the next great electrical invention of the 21 st Century could come from one of our amazing WPS P7 pupils.
