Balloon Race Car 2D Design parts and instructions for students Year 6 - 7 transition

(0)
This resource was created for year 6 summer school students. The file includes a 2D design file to cut the parts needed to make a balloon racer. I found that corrugated card worked better as it is light weight, although drying times are longer. I gave students the choice of using either card or plywood, or a combination of both. Great, fun activity for students. Principles of a design brief and specifications have also been included, along with some extension tasks to be completed while the glue dries.

Design Technology Market Pull Technology Push Globalisation Consumer Rights Product Life Cycle

(0)
Based on the Eduqas GCSE Design and Technology specification, this range of starter activities introduce some of the technical principles as described by the specification. This resource covers:- Market pull Technology Push Product Life Cycle Globalisation Consumer rights There are full instructions per slide with suggestions about how this resource can be used most effectively. There are a range of student hand-outs designed to keep activities relevant, interesting and interactive. The new far reaching design and technology specifications for GCSE students provide new challenges to teachers due to the vast range to be covered. I hope to help address these issues through my resources. Further resources linked to this course will be published over the coming days and weeks.
Design Technology Electronic Component Recognition Worksheet

Design Technology Electronic Component Recognition Worksheet

(1)
Good as a silent starter this component recognition worksheet is based upon the AQA Electronic Products Specification. The worksheet challenges students to name some of the less obvious components and also state if they are polarised. As the Design Technology Specification has changed and students are required a much broader knowledge this starter can help teachers with minimal subject knowledge to introduce electronics to students. This resource is free. There are many more resources for you to enjoy, some free, some payable. Please enjoy.
Design Technology Electronics Process Components Information Cards

Design Technology Electronics Process Components Information Cards

Turn your students into independent learners with these well presented, informative information cards. Packed with information about the Transistors, Darlington Pairs, 555 Monostable and Astable, 4017b Decade counters, 4026 Decade counters, Logic Gates, the NAND gate as all other gates, Operational Amplifiers - Inverting, Non-inverting and as Comparators, and Microcontrollers. I designed these information cards to be used by students who are developing system diagrams. Students often feel overwhelmed when it comes to designing systems because they are unsure which input, process and output components to choose and they are unsure what they all do. These cards provide the answers so students can easily assess whether the component will meet their needs. Obviously the students will learn much more about the individual components along the way! Buy this resource on its own or as part of a bundle including a starter on systems diagrams, and activity where students design systems in order to meet specific design briefs and a set of Input component information cards. Output component cards will be online soon.
