Take It Apart Club

Take It Apart Club

Take It Apart Club was designed for Year 5 & 6. Pupils take apart broken electrical items such as telephones, tablets, sandwich toasters. They use tools to do so, with assistance from staff where needed. The sheets help to identify common components which they are likely to find. Please see the rules for information concerning your Risk Assessment. Our pupils wore eye protection. The aim was to harness the pupils curiosity and increase familiarity with tools. It was hoped they would learn some components but this was not enforced in a lunchtime club.
