Day 1 Reflections

Today at NTU, it was a fun and enriching experience. I learned many things I never would have learnt in a normal everyday Secondary School classroom.

There, we learned about DC motors, how they function, how to make an engine, to put theory into practice.

The first exercise we did was learnt he fleming's left hand rule.
It indeed proved useful in the upcoming second experiment where we used magnets to push away a suspending metal rod. 

The Third experiment was the most fun but time-consuming experiment. It was to build a DC motor from scratch. 
It involves many wire coiling and also assembling parts together to form a DC motor using magnets. At the end of the day, we did not achieve the desired result but we will continue working on the motor tomorrow.
