Cam Toys – May 2024

In our recent Design and Technology sessions, we’ve been diving into the world of cam toys! We kicked things off by learning that cams rotate on an axle while making a follower go up and down. We considered how the shape of the cam affects the movement and learned that if the follower is off-centre, it will rotate. We then designed and built our own cam toys. It took some serious focus and careful work, but we have all created a cam toy that we are really proud of.
