Computers Helping the Design Process at Lower Key Stage Two: Easy 3-D Vehicle Models
One of the trial units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. Children design and make a 3-dimensional prototype model of a commercial vehicle.
It must be suitable for use as a storage and transport vehicle for a particular load such as milk bottles, letters and parcels, sheets of glass, bathroom fittings, tree branches, light aircraft.
The teacher may give the same brief to all or build differentiation into the activity by selecting more challenging tasks for more able students. The role of the text and/or graphics on the body of the vehicle should also be explored, for example advertising, safety warnings and company logos.
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.
