The class 10 students of GCMHSS Wadudia made a vaccuum cleaner, hydraulic lift and washing machine for the Swat Science Festival.
When asked how long it took them, one of them said: “Not long at all. Ten minutes. We students in Swat, this comes to us naturally.”
For the vacuum they inserted a bottle into a soft drink bottle to collect the dirt and attached a chute machine at the end. The washing machine had a motor and the the hydraulic lift used a bucket within a bucket to lift up when a student pumped air in.
These projects were by Shahzeb, Mehran, Idrees, Saeed Mohammad and Aman Room.
The science festival is running two days Tuesday, Wednesday. Alif Ailaan worked with local partners to organise it.
