This is a 10 hour project I created for pupils who are isolating or working from home during the Covid pandemic.

The premis of the project is to consider how design can have a positive impact on others. Pupils are expected to complete the project through independent learning were teacher support is not available.

In this project pupils will consider how they can design a product for someone with arthritis. They will look at existing products, carry out some research, create designs on paper and through tinkercad. They will model their designs using home made playdough and create a final pitch.

The project is designed so that their is some guidance on what the pupils need to learn or be able to achieve, links to internet resources to help them complete tasks and upload or provide evidance.

I use Google classroom to provide pupils with their own copy but you may want to adapt if pupils require paper copies.
