Create, Experiment, Build, Question and Learn. I am a specialist Product and Graphic Design Teacher, specialising in the Iterative process of designing, prototyping and evaluating. With a particular focus on entrepreneurship and making, rooted in real-world contexts and challenges. My mission is to plan and deliver creative, fun and engaging lessons for KS3, 4 and 5, ages 11-18.

**Pupils’ love being creative with this hands-on project where they ‘Design a series of contemporary interlocking (or complimenting) espresso cups based on biomimicry’. **

Lessons are differentiated with strong cross-curricular (Literacy, Science) links, whilst requiring very little resources; only paper and desired material (I have used Fimo clay but another material could be used instead, such as cardboard). Also Included are differentiated resources and student/teacher examples.

L1
Students are introduced to biomimicry, ergonomics and the project brief.

Students design; through group tasks, individual tasks and class-discussions. We then cover some basic sketching techniques before leading to them sketching their initial ideas, which they must then justify, through annotation (clear success criteria).

L2
In this second lesson, students recap biomimicry, and learn about the ACCESS FM system in product design and it’s importance in the design process.

Students design; through group tasks, individual tasks and class-discussions. We then cover some basic sketching techniques before leading to them sketching their final idea (isometrically), which they must then justify, through an ACCESS FM specification (clear success criteria).

Lessons consists of
♦ starter
♦ class discussions
♦ main task
♦ peer assessment
♦ plenary
♦ Independent study (homework).

Lesson is a double but could be extended over several lessons.
