Grade 9 Cambie students created a crane to lift and move light objects.
How To Make It
Build Circuit: Power + Button + DC Motor + Wire + DC Motor
Place a straw on the shafts of the two DC Motors. This will cause a rotation of the straw to lift. Tie some thread around the straw and feed the straw through a Paper towel Roll.
Use cardboard to build the frame of the crane.
Switch the motors to opposite rotations (left & right).
Begin to lift!
