Making Morse Code Transmitters

In D.T. over the last week, the year 6 children have designed and made a working Morse Code transmitter. To begin with, the children had to learn what a Morse Code transmitter was used for. Following this, they designed their product. The children could remember how to create a circuit using their knowledge from Science and applied this knowledge to make a switch. They also used their maths knowledge to draw nets for the outer casing. When it came to making the product, the children learnt that care needed to be taken with the dimensions of the nets and also joining the product together. The process ended with the children evaluating their products; a useful way for the children to consider how they might improve the design if they were to make it again.
