Title: Mechanical acumen: an empirical study of the technical sagacity of some Derbyshire school children
Authors: Hales, David R.
Issue Date: 1989
Publisher: © D.R. Hales
Abstract: This report initially sets out to establish a sound rationale for some small-scale action research and begins by discussing some of the educational arguments for developing a technological capability in school children.
