If you are to do a science project, but nothing new strikes your mind, here’s a solution. Go for something new and make a Hydraulic Crane. This tutorial will guide you through the procedure of how to make a hydraulic crane for a science project
Before making anything, gather all the required material to avoid fuss.
- Cutting mat
- Hot melting glue
- Bamboo sticks
- Drill machine
- Two 20 ml syringes
- Two wooden sticks
- Another wooden stick that is comparatively longer than the other sticks
- Nut bolt
- Plywood base
- Tube connector
Steps To Make Hydraulic Crane For Science Project
Step 1: Drill holes at the ends of the opposite side of the wooden stick. You can do it with the assistance of the drill machine.
Step 2: Cut out a circular wooden wheel and cut a hole at the center of the radius of a bolt.
Step 3: After that, insert a small stick, then a longer one, and then a shorter one.
Step 4: Put the nut at the end of the bolt.
Step 5: At the more extended block, stick the shorter block.
Step 6: Stick the syringe to the long wooden stick.
Step 7: Take a few popsicle sticks. Cut them shorter.
Step 8: Stick the popsicle stick in the way shown below.
Step 9: Take the two comparatively longer sticks and glue them right below it such that it makes a triangle with the small piece of cardboard of 4×4 inches placed on the plywood base.
Step 10: Do the same on the opposite side.
Step 11: Take the tube and connect it with the syringe through a connector.
Step 12: Connect another end of the tube with another syringe.
Step 13: Pump the syringe to make your model work.
And finally, you are ready with your Hydraulic Crane for your science project.
- It is harder to pin the holes in the wooden stick through nails and hammer, so use a drill machine instead.
- Take help from your elders if you’re below 18.
- Make sure you’re using syringes that are not in use.
