We enjoy creating with our machines too... 

If you have one of our machines, pick a project below and have a go yourself.

 

We regularly update this page with new information and ideas to help get you started with your Boxford machines, continue learning and hopefully inspire you to create your own projects!

F1 in Schools - F1 Class Car 

This project teaches students about carbon dioxide propulsion systems and how they can be used to fire cars.

 

Adding an element of competition, where teams from different schools build their own model vehicle and pit them against each other in races, enhances the learning and motivation of students.

Visit the F1 In Schools website for more information about the project.
