Families board a boat in Bristol to explore cranes, winches, pulleys, hydraulics and robotics
Crane manufacturers Liebherr sponsor the Lifting Aspirations Programme at Vertikal Days, the largest lifting and access industry trade show in the UK held at the Siverstone Curcuit. Two days of workshops held fro Year 10 students from the Slvestone Circuit UTC
Working from a ship under the historic Cargo Cranes in Bristol's Floating Harbour students built Cranes, visited demonstrations of robotics and machines that give mechanical advantage. They also went up and operated a real crane high above the ship.
60 students explore lifting technology, robotics and bio mechanics while building their own robotic arm from card, syringes, plastic tubing, paper clips and split pins.
Students from Primary and Secondary Schools exploring engineering and working in teams to build a working crane
Hundreds of children across Bristol used MV Balmoral as a floating classroom during National Science Week 2016 to learn about hydraulics, pneumatics and pulley systems.
