Introduction to Mechanism

First Period
As part of the requirements of the toy design project, your team would have to consider the inclusion of Simple Mechanisms, or Simple Electronics in your designs. In Today's lesson, the class would cover a basic introduction to simple mechanisms. There are 6 toy design teams and each team would be covering one of these basic areas of mechanisms. Every pupil in the class has a role to play as all your work will be consolidated to be used as reference for the class.
