Design &Technology Home Learning Making Task - Spaghetti Bridges

6x45min home lessons that make up a complete project that looks at the design process to create a Spaghetti Bridge considering Forces and Stresses. Designed for Distance Learning this project follows a full design process inspired by that of the GCSE specification. Pupils research, design, create and evaluate and get to make a high end product even in the confinements of their home. All resources are ready to go straight onto Google Classroom or any e-learning platform with little instruction.

This is a great project and I have adapted it to suit my children who are younger at home. I have loaded the editable files so that you can change, add or personalise as needed. I have taught this whilst at school and it works really well whilst keeping socially distant and in a ‘standard classroom’ as well.

There is a clear timeline that is explained to pupils throughout the project and the templated sheets help pupils stretch to their full potential. Look forward to seeing hundreds of variations Spaghetti Bridges that pupils will enjoy.

Save for later
