Invent a Machine

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


The importance of this task is the need to explain how it works – this will show that Beavers have invented a proper tool or machine and not just a junk model. Beavers could draw their invention, make it from junk/recycled materials, or demonstrate it in some other way. They don’t actually have to make it work, just explain what it will do. Could add some words into a container that they could use to inspire eg. wheels, cogs, chimney, fuel (gas, electric, coals etc). Work in lodges as teamwork to discuss and present their ideas.


Paper, Pencils, Junk (Optional)


Beavers design a machine and explain how it works.
