Product design! 

The aim is to provide opportunities for the students to develop existing skills & knowledge and take it to another level. Students who are interested in exploring what it means to be a product designer. This will include using a range of materials, tools and machines, and practical skills, to produce practical projects with various materials.

The students will also be to using the “design process” in which they will develop a design brief and a design project. The brief requires that they seek a “client’s” requirements; explore existing products; develop limitations, development of design ideas using rapid sketches & drawings; select appropriate materials; production of their own design & reflection.

Develop an understanding of what is required when communicating a working drawing to be used for manufacture. Use of CAD software sketch. Activities may also involve peer teaching primary students.
