KS3 Jewellery and User-Centred Organisers

(3)
Pupils explore metals and casting in creating an art-deco inspired jewellery piece. Pupils design in a booklet and then use 2D Design to design the mould to be laser cut from 2mm MDF. Pupils then design and manufacture a user-centred organiser. All pupils receive a piece of 18mm plywood which then can use as a base, then design around that. Very open ended and pupils enjoy the freedom in which this project allows. Scheme of work, examples, booklets and powerpoints included.

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.
