Merit Award : kayaking

Design Brief:

Our group was given a task to design a moving toy with a design theme "Singapore". The first thought that came to our minds was the Youth Olympic Games that took place in Singapore last year. We decided to do a design on kayaking as the Singapore sailing team has won many medals for the nation. We are proud to design this toy based on the achievements of the Singapore sailing team. The design consists of two objects, a trophy and a boat. The movement for both the objects is moving up and down, using a kind of mechanism known as "Cam & Follower". As the cam rotates, the follower will move up and down as shown in the below figures.
