BTEC Level 2 Engineering - Unit 1: The Engineered World - Manufacturing processes.

This is a team work based game that introduces students to the following topics: Surface mount technology CNC machinery Pick and place robotics Drop forging Shearing Teams of four/five are assigned roles (I've assigned teams of 4 because I have classes of 20+) but you could do teams of three by merging the writer/explainer role. Five paragraphs (1 about each process) are put out on different tables and students have to work as a team to produce a quick poster of each process using words and pictures. I'm going to give the team with the best 5 posters a prize at the end. Students are each given specific tasks and their are rules to keep them in check. A five minute timer and two minute timer are in the powerpoint to help you move them on and keep the pressure/pace of the competition going. They could even vote for the winning team at the end or you could get the teams to swap posters and add in anything they think was missing.

This resources is an adaptable lesson PowerPoint including worksheets covering the advantages and disadvantages of Titanium, Tungsten, Superalloys, Modern high performance ceramics, Kevlar and Optical Fibres. In the bell task students can annotate the first slide in pairs or teams to establish prior knowledge. The main task is a series of six fact slides, one for each material. I print and place these on the tables and then students can move around the room to each table copying down the facts. However, you could a copy of each material slide to a table and use KAGAN strategies (5 minutes - 10 minutes per slide to copy each and swap) if they are a lively bunch or you want them to remain seated. Discussions for a plenary or save for your next starter. If you are unsure there are some free Unit 1 resources for other topics available so that you see my resources in more detail before committing to buy! Free for NQT's, just get in touch.

Level 2 BTEC Engineering - Unit 1: The Engineered World - Investment Casting

(0)
Three pdf worksheets aimed at teaching students the stages of investment casting. The first resource asks students to watch a ten minute youtube clip and then write the stages of investment casting onto the worksheet. There are times given (in minutes and seconds) where the teacher can pause the video and students are given keywords to allow them to learn the correct terminology. This could also be given as a homework. The second task is to revise the process by cutting and sticking the icons into the correct order. Any questions just ask! *Colours correted, some of the pictures were wax coloured, not aluminium coloured

Level 2 BTEC Engineering - Unit 1: The Engineered World - Blended Wing Bodies.

(0)
A set of resources including four worksheets and a presentation that aims teach students about blended wing bodies used in the aerospace engineering sector. The bell work is a spot the difference task that aims to encourage students to compare and contrast traditional aircraft with aircraft that have blended wing bodies. This moves into a discussion about their advantages and disadvantages. From this point students should be able to answer all of the questions in the worksheets. Types of questions include multiple choice questions, learning of key terms, and given statements where students have to justify the answers. The final task is a long answer question, ideal as an extension for more able students, or a homework for all. Please look at my other free resources if you are curious about my teaching style and want to see what's on offer before you commit to buy! Free for NQT's, just get in touch.

BTEC Level 1/2 Tech Award in Engineering from 2018 - Component 1/2 manufacturing processes learning.

(1)
In an attempt to stimulate a little bit of independence from our level 2 learners we’re working on a “create your our textbook” principle. This is a 21 page booklet. Each page has a generic layout with 4 boxes (because we all know that boys like to have a clear grasp of what they are going to see and what they need to do to get out of lesson when the bell goes, instead of staying behind and face 10 minutes of self reflection…!) Each slide has a process name as the title “drilling” these manufacturing processes come from the specification. The first box asks students to collect a picture, animation, youtube video, draw a sketch or a photograph of someone completing the process. You could provide learners with a range of information and specify the task, we’ll be using google classroom and slides so they can find something memorable of their own. The second box asks them to collect products made using the process which can be “taught” at the beginning of the lesson or self directed. A few of the processes they collect other information “different shaped file profiles” is an example. The third box gives them a range of tasks that are literacy related and tie into MAGENTA principles which are differentiated and if students have had a writing heavy day or a good understanding of the process already or are less able they can complete an easy one. See below. Use ten keywords. Three bullet points. Copy and paste a description of the process then highlight ten important words. Describe the process in four stages. Write a detailed paragraph including advantages and disadvantages. (More able moving onto L3 students should really consider using this final task. We can live in hope.) The final box asks students to explain which materials the process can be used in conjunction with. The slides are extremely similar, but this should help us (and you) move away from lots of loose worksheets that get lost to a photocopied booklet or online booklet where everything is together. (It also means that if they end up in the inclusion unit they can just carry on independently and cover lessons need minimal resources and have routine built in.) Happy September!
