Machines & Mechanisms for Primary School

Discover how the real world works

Machines & Mechanisms enable primary school pupils to discover how the real world works. With Machines & Mechanisms, pupils get an in-depth understanding of mechanical and structural principles built into everyday machines. By building, designing, and testing solutions, pupils work as young scientists and engineers, all while honing design technology, science, and maths skills. We support teachers by providing easy-to-use, age-appropriate, hands-on materials along with guided lessons that tick technology and science curriculum boxes.
