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.

KS3 SMSC Designing for Survival - 2 lesson project

KS3 SMSC Designing for Survival - 2 lesson project

Pupils are asked to design one of a range of products to help victims of floods in a developing country. Lesson 1 begins with a silent reflection to set the scene, they then work on design ideas and develop them. In Lesson 2 they create a model of their idea and present it to the class. Focus on SMSC and oracy.
