Grade 6


Module 10

Construct a basic frame structure


You are now going to make the container. Follow the instructions carefully and when you have completed one specific step, mark your progress in the frame.


  1. Measure and mark the four required lengths with a ruler and pencil on the wooden strip (as decided in assignment 1 of the design).

b) Use a fretsaw, a carpenter’s square and a sawhorse, and cut the four required lengths.

c) Using a pair of scissors, cut a strip of cardboard as wide as a ruler (3 cm) from the A4 piece of cardboard.

d) Draw squares of 3 cm wide on the cardboard and cut them off.

e) Cut through the middle of each square to make triangles.

f) Place two wooden strips against each other to make a 90˚ angle on a sheet of paper on which a 90˚ angle has already been drawn.

g) Paste a cardboard triangle across the 90˚ angle that is formed by the two wooden strips. Use paper glue to stick it.

h) Complete the other three angles as you did in numbers f and g .

I) Turn the frame over and paste four triangles onto the opposite side. Use paper glue.

j) Copy the frame on cardboard. Place it against the edge. Mark one angle on the frame and cardboard with a star so that the container keeps its shape (stars next to one another).

k) Cut out the bottom of your container from cardboard and paste the frame to it.

l) Draw the other side of the frame on cardboard. This is the lid.

m) Cut it out.

n) Decorate the top of the lid by transferring a design from your page by using a pencil and carbon paper. Complete it with the felt-tipped pens.

o) Cut a strip of cardboard of 2 cm wide so that it is just as long as the longest side of the container.

p) Notch it exactly in the middle, using a pair of scissors and a ruler. Do this on a suitable surface. Fold it to work as a hinge.

q) Glue the hinge to the framework and lid so that it opens with the lid. Approximately 1 cm must extend at the back. The less attractive side of the hinge must be pasted onto the frame and lid so that the clean side is visible when the lid is opened.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
