KS3 Engineering Project - USB Lamp

KS3 Engineering Project - USB Lamp

Work in Progress! Engineering scheme of work for a USB powered lamp aimed at Year 7. One lesson per week over six weeks , 1.25 hours per lesson. Mostly making - no design element. Theoretical skills: - Woods - Product Analysis - Design Specification - Evaluation Practical skills: - Measuring - Marking Out - Cutting - Milling - Drilling - Joints (Dowel and Mortise and Tenon) - Soldering - Staining Extended writing evaluation at end, review week used to improve any written work and present their work orally.

KS3 Passive Amplifier Project

KS3 Passive Amplifier Project

A passive amplifier product design project designed for Y8. Students are given three identical pieces of softwood that they sandwich together, the centre piece is cut specifically for their mobile phone to slot into, the front and centre are then bored using a Forstner bit for the sound to amplify, then slots cut to join the bores to the mobile phone speakers. Pupils conduct primary research on a selection of pre-made amplifiers, come up with initial ideas, use a Pugh Matrix to select an idea, develop that idea and then manufacture.
