STEM / Computing / Maths Project Lesson - Engineer a Smartphone - Product Design Challege

STEM / Computing / Maths Project Lesson - Engineer a Smartphone - Product Design Challege

This is an activity lesson I made to promote STEM / Computing / Maths. The activity involves the students working in groups to design, market and calculate costings for their own smartphones. It is a highly engaging activity getting students thinking about the key aspects including engineering decisions, financial calculations and helps develop managerial skills. Content includes choosing components for their phones, branding it, choosing materials, creating scale drawings, creating a promotional poster and presenting back to the class. It could easily be used as a whole year group event in a hall or similar venue, or on a smaller scale in lessons. It was originally pitched for year 9 students, but would be suitable for 8 and 10, and high ability year 7s. Comes with a powerpoint with key instructions, but focuses around the pack of worksheets which I print 2 to a page and give out 1 between 4.

Survival Invention BUNDLE (STEAM with Explanation Text)

Survival Invention BUNDLE (STEAM with Explanation Text)

This resource has been designed to be done alongside Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, but can also be done independently of the novel study. Children will design survival inventions to withstand the environment of a remote island after a shipwreck. They will investigate different weather patterns in a specified area of the world before deciding on what they will need to survive. Children will be encouraged to use different diagrams (annotated, cross-sectional and exploded) to show their ideas before making and evaluating them. This bundle also includes the Explanation Outcome where children will explain their inventions according to the 2014 National Curriculum English Standards for Year 6. Links provided to digital resources for editing and sharing on Google Classroom and Seesaw.
