Innovative Inspire Award Winning Project – Fire alarm working model for science exhibition

Creating a fire alarm working model using a tube light starter, a switch, a plastic bottle for water storage, and a DC water pump is an interesting way to understand the basic concept of fire detection and suppression.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to build this model:

Materials You’ll Need:

  1. Tube light starter (as a fire detector)
  2. Toggle switch
  3. Plastic bottle (for water storage)
  4. DC water pump
  5. Plastic tubing or straws (for water flow)
  6. Small container (for water reservoir)
  7. Craft knife or scissors
  8. Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  9. Craft supplies for decoration (markers, stickers, etc.)

  1. Prepare the Base:
    • Start by preparing a stable base for your model using cardboard or any suitable material.
  2. Fire Detector (Tube Light Starter):
    • Attach the tube light starter to the base. This will simulate the fire detection mechanism.
  3. Water Storage Bottle:
    • Attach a plastic bottle to the base to represent a water storage tank.
    • Fill the bottle with water.
  4. DC Water Pump and Water Flow:
    • Attach the DC water pump to the base near the water storage bottle.
    • Use plastic tubing or straws to connect the water pump’s outlet to the top of the bottle.
  5. Water Reservoir:
    • Place a small container on the base to act as a water reservoir.
    • This container will catch and store the water pumped from the bottle.
  6. Toggle Switch:
    • Attach the toggle switch to the base.
    • Connect the switch to the power source (battery) and the tube light starter.
  7. Assembly:
    • Position the tube light starter near the plastic bottle (water storage).
    • Place the water reservoir container below the tube light starter to catch the water flow.
  8. Simulation:
    • When the tube light starter detects heat (as a simulation of fire), it triggers the circuit, turning on the DC water pump.
  9. Water Pumping:
    • The water pump will start pumping water from the plastic bottle to the tube light starter area.
  10. Water Flow and Suppression:
    • Observe how the water flows from the plastic bottle to the tube light starter area, simulating fire suppression.
  11. Final Touches:
    • Decorate the model with labels, signs, and other details to make it visually informative.

Remember that this is a simplified model for educational purposes and does not replicate actual fire alarm and suppression systems used in real-life scenarios. Always prioritize safety and follow proper guidelines when working with electrical components and materials.
