Rendering exercises to help develop graphic and presentation skills.

(1)
A resource developed for years seven, eight or nine to improve graphic skills and presentation of ideas. The seven tasks begin with thick and thin line technique, rendering materials and texture. Students are given 'sample sheets' of black and white rendered forms that show how tonal detail and specific materials would appear rendered in both monochrome and colour. Students are then prompted to look at how to combine colour with tone and texture. The Powerpoint contains all the visual resources and examples needed to complete the assignment.

(2)
Production exercise for a key stage three group using timber and basic mechanisms. Sequential photo diagrams and notes explains how to construct a mechanical timber robot from stock size softwood. Each stage of making is described in sequence with all the dimensions and assembly instructions. Enrichment opportunity exists in prompts toward a more sophisticated outcome. The second booklet contains photographs only and more detail about production aids to explain assembly

Types of Motion, Mechanisms and Force

(0)
A resource and set of activities prepared for year eight to introduce types of motion, mechanisms and force. The resource offers some comprehension and practical research into levers, linkages, and cam mechanisms with a card based engineering design task at the end. questions and tasks to consolidate and extend the learning are built in at each stage

Build a simple mechanical marvel robot toy using cams and cranks

(0)
A task designed to introduce simple mechanisms and develop work shop skills when possibly producing in quantity. This a comprehensive and very visual resource that lends itself to a production based, or focussed practical task for year nine or ten students. The task includes opportunity for some differentiation in terms of the level of sophistication of possible outcomes. Clear, concise instructions guide every step of production and assembly. A really fun task to explore batch production and team work. I also plan to use it to help develop students ability to plan the production of a chosen outcome by identifying the resources needed and the correct, logical sequence of construction and assembly.

Design and build a wind powered garden decoration/whirligig

(0)
A resource I designed and made for year nine or ten product design. Students study the basics of motion, mechanisms and force to produce a crank driven garden decoration. It isn’t a heavily prescriptive resource but offers opportunity for interpretation, differentiation and varying degrees of sophistication in terms of outcome. It contains lots of mini focused practical tasks to produce the key components for a complete, functioning garden whirligig. It contains a wealth of information to help analyze existing products, conceptualize and develop a working solution.

A Powerpoint presentation containing a range of inititial concepts and inspiration for seating design. I made it for the AQA resistant materials 2017 theme 'public seating for adults and young children.' It explores seating generally with some directly relevant to external seating concepts. Some of them combine hand drawn examples enhanced digitally which students enjoy.

Sustainable Design and The Environment

(0)
A resource to explore the environmental and ethical and moral impact of design and manufacturing on the planet. Several case studies are used to explore sustainability issues and the ethical alternatives. I made it as an optimistic resource that shows students there are viable, sustainable alternatives to current, unsustainable design and manufacturing. Concepts and content includes, sustainable and unsustainable design, renewable and non renewable energy sources, product life cycle analysis, six R’s of sustainability, up cycling and the hidden costs of design.

Learning and revision resources for the AQA Resistant Materials 2017 examination.

(0)
A comprehensive learning and revision resource for the AQA Resistant Materials summer examination theme of 'Public Seating for Adults and Children.' Its a very visual resource with focussed tasks and questions designed to tease out and consolidate the relevant key concepts and knowledge necessary to tackle the summer exam. I have attempted to address the whole program of study in a creative and challenging way which gets the students to think and make the links between the characteristics of materials, making processes and production requirements relevant to the exam theme. It was also really important to me that the resource contains information to prepare students to confidently tackle a design task within the exam.
