If you are to do a science project, but nothing new strikes your mind, here’s a solution. Go for something exciting and make an electric lift. This tutorial will guide you through the procedure to make an electric lift for a science project.
Before making anything, it’s pretty much better to gather all the required stuff in one place to avoid any fuss.
- Cutting mat
- Glue gun
- Plywood base
- Origami paper
- Bamboo stick
Steps To Make An Electric Lift
Step 1: Cut three strips of 26×3 cm.
Step 2: And stick them with each other.
Step 3: Wrap it with origami paper.
Step 4: Now, take a plywood base of 26×12 cm.
Step 5: And cover its corner with colored tape or origami paper.
Step 6: Now, cut the strips of measurements as shown in the picture.
Step 7: Now, prepare a small box as shown below.
Step 8: Now, prepare a cardboard bar and stand for the project.
Step 9: To the wooden bar, glue a small strip. Then, stick a small wooden stick into it the diameter of a bobbin. Later, insert it into the bobbin and glue it properly. Follow the similar steps for the other end.
Step 10: Now, stick one bobbin to the DC motor holder.
Step 11: Take a battery and a battery holder and connect them to the motor through a switch.
Step 12: Roll the thread over the bobbin connected to the DC motor and pass it through the other two bobbins and glue it over the box.
- Use a plywood base instead of a cardboard
- Use thin cardboard to make the elevator box and the rest of the material.
- Use a strong thread.
- Take the help of your elder if required.
