DT chariot design

We’re nearing the end of our learning about the Romans, but can’t do so without investigating their superb engineering skills. We are spending the next couple of weeks focusing on DT as we make models of Roman chariots.

We watched a chariot race and identified what functions a chariot needed to perform. We then made card models in order to study the structure. We’ll be looking at wheels and axles next, prior to designing, building and evaluating our own models.
