- Production of Windcar as Teaching Material for Schoolchildren to Introduce Interest of Manufacturing
We developed new teaching material to introduce the interest of manufacturing for schoolchildren. In this teaching material, schoolchildren can know the interest of manufacturing by making and playing a windcar. The windcar is the car which runs to windward by using only the power of wind. We prepared the windcar kit, which contains all parts of windcar and instruction manual. The windcar kit has fifteen process to complete and in needs 10-20 minutes for most schoolchildren. We participated in the public exhibition in Okayama Research Park with this teaching material. From the looks of the participated children or the circumstance of this event, we considered that if the teaching material is suitable to introduce the interest of manufacturing for schoolchildren. As the result, it is shown that this teaching material is the effective to give the participants the interest. Additionally, it is expected to bring good publicity for Tsuyama National College of Technology.
