Ollie's Strandbeast


video

With a lot of teacher input (my brain will never be the same), Ollie making lots of triangles, counting out parts and testing structures we've managed to make one that has the action right after finding rough instructions with pictures online.

Now to make it walk on it's own. We brought a motor, but it didn't have the grunt, so maybe we need to play with some gears. Ollie's gone home with mum to look at her mountain bike and learn about how they work.

Xander loves this now we got it walking on the stand and lots of others are, like me, fascinated by the motion.
