Year 5 & 6

In Year 5 & 6 we explored how infectious diseases spread when hand washing devices are not easily accessible. 


We designed a hand washing device that could be used for a school in Kenya, to help stop the spread of infectious disease. We created a design plan of our device following a design criteria. We then created a prototype of our design and tested its functionality- we had to ensure that it dispensed water sparingly, and we had to study the speed and force in which the water was dispensed to ensure it was efficient.


We then selected the best model based on our evaluations, and created a large scale hand washing device.
