LO 1.1.1
  1. How creative are you?

This activity can be correlated with art. If you do not want to build your own machine, you can design it on poster paper.

  1. Are you an inventor?

Design and build your own machine or appliance from odds and ends. The garage at home is often a rich source of old spare parts, nuts, bolts, switches, wire and so on. If these are not available, cardboard boxes and tubes, plastic containers, batteries, light bulbs and other discarded items can be assembled to make an imaginative invention.

(CAUTION: Do not connect your machine to electric current)

  1. Give your machine a purpose and a name.
  2. Demonstrate your machine to the class, explaining how it works.
LO 2.2.1
  1. Reading skills

Practise in searching for the main idea and the supporting details .

"All over the world machines are used to rescue people who are in danger."

This first sentence tells you what the unit is all about. The keywords in the sentence are machines and rescue . So the title for these pages could be MACHINES USED FOR RESCUE.

Each paragraph tells you about different machines and the work they do. Find a heading for each paragraph and make a list of the important details. The first paragraph is done for you.

  1. The wail of an ambulance siren can often be heard in the streets of large towns. The ambulance on its way to an accident carries oxygen masks and cylinders. It also carries equipment known as a sucker unit that can pump food and liquid from the stomach.

Heading: Ambulances

Detail: Machinery which is part of the equipment of an ambulance:

  • siren
  • oxygen masks and cylinders
  • sucker unit
  • A 999 call often brings out the Fire Brigade. Fire engines carry the very largest appliances. A powerful pump forces the water through the hoses. The power-operated ladders rescue people from high buildings. The acetylene cutting gear is used to release people who are trapped in crashed cars.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
