In this second semester we had an interdisciplinary lesson about Science and Design Technology. We have explored some simple machines and their functions. We have also learnt about the formula to find the force and weight in simple machines. In Design Technology, we have learnt about how to design a machine.

We were divided into six groups. We tried to combine several simple parts into a complex machine. The simple machines we put together were pulley, inclined plane, wheel and axle, lever and screw. We made use of old/used materials we could find around us, such as old boxes, used paper, plastic bottles, etc. Here are the results of our projects: A Lamp, created by Vincen, Galang and Vaneza; Legendary Ice Thrower by Gilbert and Barada; The Amazing World of Gum Doll by Alifa, Adel and Feren; Magic Watering Plant Machine by Kayo, Amel and Diva; Cereal-ator by Kesya and Alin; The Malaka by Kanya, Laras and Maureen.
