Brush Monster Class Kit

A cross-curricular STEM class kit for 30 pupils working in groups of 3 to design, build and test vibrating brush monsters.

  • Pupils will apply their knowledge of simple series circuits to make a working model. The pupils will construct a switched motor circuit which rotates an offset weight, causing vibrations.

  • They will mount their circuit on a dustpan brush, so that the vibrations are transmitted down the bristles, causing the brush to scuttle across the floor. The brushes are then decorated and raced.

  • Here is a quote from a teacher:

  • “The activity was fantastic and the children definitely bought into the fun, purpose and challenge of the session. What an excellent idea from such simple components!”

  • Created by mechanical engineer Caroline Alliston. Supporting literature includes a lesson plan, PowerPoint, pupil worksheet and ‘how to’ blog.
