Design Technology - cam mechanisms

In Design Technology, we have been investigating cam mechanisms within moving toys. As our Host Country this term in Japan, our design brief was to make a toy with two different cam movements, under the theme of 'Japan: Old and New'.


We made careful measurements to ensure that our axles were straight and the holes for our sliders were in the correct place. We used hacksaws to cut dowel to the correct lengths and adapted our cams so that the movements were different. Our figures on top of the sliders reflect features of old and new Japanese culture. We then created background and foreground scenery for the boxes!
