Design and Make – Scent Emitting Device – Aroma Fan
Students analyse existing products to understand how they function and that products can incorporate elements of control. They will investigate and experiment with timing circuits and consider factors influencing designs. Using sketching, 3D modelling and electronics or control systems they construct or model a product using suitable materials, electronic components and techniques. Teachers can adapt this as a Mainly Making activity using the supplied files and support materials.
This updated set of Key Resources for Product Design, Systems and Control and Textiles has been fully refreshed and new titles added. They provide teachers of Years 7, 8 and 9 with a basic set of units they can use and adapt to cover vital areas and address progression and the four learning focuses when teaching D&T:
• Mainly Making
• Mainly Designing
• Design and Make
• Technology in Society.
The original set of Key Resources was developed to help teachers move their schemes of work from craft-based focused projects, where the outcome is the key element, towards planning Design and Technology learning units that focus on students’ learning. As before, these are 'starter' materials for teachers to adapt to their own circumstances, making them more demanding, or simpler, as necessary.
The updated resources each include a 12-point planner with the essential ‘building blocks’ that should be included to achieve good practice in D&T. We encourage teachers to engage with them by highlighting, completing, or adding to the text as appropriate. This is a relatively quick and straightforward process, with lots of helpful ideas to choose from.
They have more and updated materials, including video, suggestions for activities and links to other websites and resources for students to discover more. Extensive notes and slides for teacher use are included in each of the presentations and the appropriate NC coded objectives are laid out to follow.
