Week 2 – Building the Chassis for the Vehicles

We finally have the chassis’ for both Engineer Level 2 entries!

We all followed a similar process to make sure that they would be ready for the competition. We had to measure the length of both vehicles, so we put the wooden wheels flat against the table and choose a distance that would be suited to they types of vehicles we were making. We carefully used a handsaw to cut pieces of wood that we would need for the frame. We also cut the dowel wood for the axles and drive wheels.

To make the vehicle secure, we had to use a hot glue gun. We asked for Mr Dougill’s help for this bit so that it was safe!
