Skills Gap Resources – Product Development Applying Metal Manufacturing Processes

Ages: 11-14 years
First published 2015

This project allows KS3 students to explore the properties of metals through form and function, and ‘alter’ the characteristics by industrial processes. It was developed through a Skills Gap programme partnership between Brandauer and St. Albans Academy.

This project is designed to enable a product development activity to be taught with a strong industrial context. Students research several industrial metal manufacturing processes and then apply them to the manufacture of a pair of sunglasses. The business context is reinforced throughout the project to ensure prototypes are of the highest quality and suitable for a potential business product.

Module 1. Industrial context

Module 2. Analysing and reflecting

Module 3. Preparing for manufacture

Module 4. Manufacture

Module 5. Reflecting on the process

These resources were developed in 2015 as part of the Skills Gap programme, linking schools with industry, to enhance Design and Technology teachers’ technical skills and knowledge to deliver an exciting, relevant and up-to-date curriculum.
