Bionics Hands in Room 23

Written on 05/04/2023

We have been learning about ‘Human Life’. We explored and investigated how people move their bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Using our STEM skills we created Bionic Hands made out of cardboard, string, straws and rubber bands. Our design task involved understanding the function of the fingers and the importance of the thumb, to grab or hold objects with different shapes and forms. We tested them by drinking a glass of water and throwing something into a bin.
