Tech Students Perform Windup Toy Autopsies

Students in Mrs. Shapiro's Technological Systems classes are doing Systems Engineering with a reverse engineering project.

Student teams were given a windup toy to find out how it works, where possible malfunctions might occur, and determine how the malfunctions could be prevented. Each student wrote descriptions of their windup toy, included drawings, and used tools to take their windup toy apart.
