The StemWizz Carnival Wheel
Round and round we go, when we stop nobody knows!
Create you very own carnival wheel by engineering a large wheel, next build a pulley system using belts, a propeller, a motor, belt pulleys and a battery box and combine all the parts together to get your wheel rotating in a smooth 360-degree motion.
This project teaches young people the principles of pulley systems and how they can be applied to move heavy objects along with the advantages of using a multiple pulley system. The project also teaches young people about wiring a motor to a battery box and using belts on propellers along with engineering concepts by putting all the parts together.
The main parts in this STEM project combines a mixture of:
- Battery Box
- Belt Pulleys
- Beaded Shafts
- Plastic Parts for The Wheel
