Build your own Sandtimer:
This lesson uses bespoke, 3D printed components designed by Makerversity DIY, alongside everyday household items to enable children to produce a sandtimer. This is a great opportunity for pupils to hone fine motor skills through a simple hands on activity, whilst also practicing accuracy and measurement skills. The use of 3D printed components can open up discussion about production processes, materials and environmental or ethical implications of design.
This pack contains a teacher's guide, lesson plan, presentation, instruction sheets, exercise sheets and equipment list. You will need a 3D printer with SD card, PLA Filament, fine sand or salt, weighing scales, plastic bottles, funnel, stopwatch.
