More web based interactives and visualisations
I remember doing a project in primary school about cars... I think I was in year five.
I got pictures from magazines and I did research and it was one of my best projects.... But when it came the the engine part - pistons and systems - I literally copied an image/diagram out of a book and had no real understanding of what actually happens in a petrol engine. It wasn't until I saw a cut away model that you could turn the crank on and a video of what happens did I truly get the engine - this was much later when I took up motors and machines in high school.
