STEM into Action with D&T
First published 2016
A spin art machine allows paint that is dropped on to paper to fly off, creating interesting patterns. The viscosity of the paint and the speed and positioning of the spinner are factors that can change how the patterns appear.
This resource contains a PowerPoint presentation and Word document that covers the science and mathematics behind viscosity, centrifuges, centripetal and kinetic forces and how these and image manipulation can help in the design of a product.
The STEM into Action D&T Key Resources were developed with support from Mayor of London.
These resources are not meant to be given to students without explanation. They are best used in short sessions which combine hands-on experimentation and creative tasks. Technical knowledge will be gained and secured through experimentation which can then be applied in a design context.
Spin Art kits and many other STEM resources for schools can be purchased from the Mindsets web site: http://www.mindsetsonline.co.uk/
