Our pupils are tasked with researching, designing, creating and evaluating products with the aim to solve real life problems, relevant to their own lives, within a variety of contexts.
Every task has been formulated with a clear function to ensure products are fit for use in real life scenarios and each has a true reason behind the project, driving the process, created with a client/specification in mind to ensure learning is purposeful.
Subject Aims: -To research existing products, considering the way in which they meet the specification and how their own product will fit into this market -To gather a bank of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design a high-quality working prototype fit for purpose to meet the requirements of a specific client/audience -To construct their design utilising the most appropriate materials and deploying the most suitable and effective tools - Critique, evaluate and test their own ideas and products and the work of others in order to alter and further improve their work as a result -Develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world -Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and a healthy, balanced diet, use mechanisms within mechanical systems, build structures, join textiles and work effectively with a wide range of varied materials
