PRIMARY LEVEL CLOCK MAKING KITS

The making of clocks in the classroom is very versatile. It provides a lot of scope, as it can be used in almost all subjects and tailored to most age and skill levels.  Scorpio Technology stocks a wide selection of Hour & Minute Hands, Second Hands, Clock Numerals and Hanger Brackets, allowing students to make simple clock faces using their own art work (e.g. using CDs or even old traditional vinyl records as the clock face base).  For more advanced clocks, students can use quartz clock movements.  A choice of different shaft lengths is available.

See our “Clock & Pen Catalogue” for more details. 

Clock making develops the students’ imagination, research, design, planning and manufacturing skills, incorporating a variety of materials. Students can develop their own design or follow the teachers’ guidelines. An added bonus is that it is a cost effective unit of work which provides a useable end product.
