Pupils will study a range of 20th Century design movements and do a full design and make project for a free standing clock, based on the work of their chosen design movement. They will develop their CAD/CAM skills further and can choose to use whichever tools and machines they feel are appropriate including the laser cutter or 3D printer.
In food, pupils will learn how to make bread in industry and by hand and further develop this to make a pizza. They will make a range of savoury dishes and look at foods of the world and the use of herbs and spices. Pupils will do some food science looking at the functions of ingredients in both pastry and cakes.
In Resistant Materials pupils will find out about metals and their properties. They will design a piece of jewellery or an accessory based on nature and will study Biomimicry.
This project will allow pupils to select and develop many of the skills learnt in previous projects including CAD/CAM and enamelling.
In textiles, the theme is sustainability where pupils use an iterative approach to design and produce an artefact from an existing textiles product. They will be encouraged to use a wide variety of skills including CAD/CAM and e-textiles, incorporating electronics where appropriate.
