The Boat Project - 1st June - 17th July

This project will continue developing the Design Process. It is an approach for breaking down a large project into manageable chunks.

 

Architects, Engineers and Product Designers use the design process to solve a variety of problems.

 

This project is broken down in twelve  1 hour lessons.

 

As you create work, photograph it and send it back to me via email and I will give you feedback on it

Design Technology Learning Tasks for Year Yr 7 and 8 Kite Project

Summer Term 2020

 

In Design Technology, you will be asked to complete extended projects where you will need to research a need, look at existing products and go through the process of designing your own solutions.  When you have completed and practical work you will need to reflect on and evaluate what you have done.  In the table below is a series of steps to help you go through the task.  You will need to download a file within the College SharePoint from the link to help you with the task.  This is available either as a PDF or editable PowerPoint file.

 

Good Luck!
