Workshop 4: Key Stage Four Resources
These resources, provided by the James Dyson Foundation, include lesson plans, activities and a presentation to support Key Stage Four design and technology and engineering courses. Through these resources, students learn about design specification, how they are used in the design process and how to develop one. They learn to analyse products according to design criteria and practise interpreting and critically analysing the sources used.
The Key Stage Four resources are:
• A planning document for teachers
• A PowerPoint presentation which introduces the topic
• Game of dominoes activity cards
The resources are designed to be used alongside the Dyson Foundation Education Box, which is offered on a free loan basis to schools by the Foundation.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
