Pupils’ love being creative with this hands-on project.** In this unit, pupils will gain an understanding into Science, technology, engineering and maths and how each interrelate with a series of applied practical tasks.** Students familiarise themselves with the keywords then there is a design and make task, applying their understanding of the theory learnt, which can be done in a group or individually. All lessons have strong cross-curricular links, particularly with Science. There is also peer assessment with clear success criteria included. ♦ Starter Activity ♦ Class discussion/individual tasks ♦ Practicals Lessons are planned as doubles (90/120 minutes).

Pupils’ love getting creative with this hands-on project. Students are tasked with up-cycling a waste Coca-cola bottle to create a new product for a particular target market. In this lesson, students are introduced to the benefits of up-cycling in relation to impact on the environment/sustainability. They then draw their own semantic mind-map to come up with product ideas of their own (creative strategy) for a certain target market. They then apply one or more of their ideas as an initial sketch. Resources have clear success criteria and peer assessment. Lesson plan is also included for further clarity. Introduction (learning question) ♦ Class discussion ♦ Semantic mind-map task ♦ Sketching.annotation Task ♦ Peer assessment ♦ Plenary/review ♦ Optional extension tasks (rapid-prototyping, dragons den style critique) Activities should be spread over 90/120 minutes.
