Moving Monsters

In DT, Year 3 designed and made moving monsters using pneumatic systems.

Pneumatic systems use air to make something move. Can you think of any examples?


Our moving monsters were based on our class book 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. We designed either the Iron Man or the 'giant space-bat-angel-dragon' characters featured in the book. We used a range of materials to make our monsters, the most important parts being the syringes and tubing that made up our pneumatic system.
