In this outstanding, creative scheme of work, students are given a brief to design and make a micro-house, the size of a shipping container to help solve the housing crisis in dense-urban areas.
With practical, written and theory work closely related to the new 1-9 GCSE Design Technology Specification. The scheme is a full term (12 or 6 week) project though could be condensed or even further extended. The project teaches students CAD through the use of Sketchup and 2D Design. Components can be laser cut or all pieces can be cut by hand so the scheme is adaptable to allow for different teaching workshops. There is a Sketchup guide included. I used card when teaching but this could easily be superseded for a different material such as wood, MDF or foam board.
This bundle includes engaging theory lessons linked to the Design Technology GCSE Specification and can be adapted to be taught at KS4 or KS5.
Lessons include in order:
♦Introduction to housing crisis, factors and design solutions
♦Creating a mood/style board
♦Technical drawing- Orthographic
♦Optional CAD & CAM- 2D Design & Laser Cutting
♦Ergonomics & Anthropometrics Theory
