Room 5's Technology Project


Steps to make drain covers


( Technology project )


Step1: We first planned what problem there may be around the School that we could look at improving or making better. We all chose to make drain covers to save the ducklings as we have had problems in the past with ducklings dying in the drains.

Step2: We drew pictures of what we wanted the drain covers to look like.

Step3: then we made prototypes out of card-board, paper, and see through card-board.

Step4: We went around the school counting the drains, and measuring them too.

Step5: Then we went online to see how much the materials would cost to make the real drain covers.

Step6: The researchers who went online had to share what they had found out.

Step7: The people who had made their prototypes had to show the class so we could pick the ones we wanted to make into the real drain covers.

Step 8: We chose two different materials to make our drain covers from. 1: Aluminum which has lots of little holes in to drain the water and 2: flexible chicken mesh which has holes that won't trap the ducklings.

 My drain cover prototype is made of stainless steel and has a steel chain attached to it for extra support.
 My drain cover prototype is made of chicken mesh with holes small enough that the ducks wont fall through. It will be attached by zip ties.
