theme park ride
Pupils design a log flume type theme park ride. First, draw a top-down view of the ride. Annotate with places where you would need some kind of sensor/gate to ensure each boat won’t crash into each other. Where will the belt lifts be on your ride? these are controlled by motor and will need turning on and off. Spraying water jets? sounds when in a tunnel? These will need turning on and off. Your task is to sketch your ride and then describe it as a flowchart. Pupils find it easier to describe the ride in full sentence English first before creating their flowchart. They find looping and decision points ticky so modeling an example is essential.
