Summary - Out now

This unit examines the impact and technical processes of 3D printing in society and in the classroom before building CAD skills to design 3D components. A practical problem-solving approach to creating connecting parts for a structure is encouraged using techniques demonstrated throughout the unit. Finally, pupils are encouraged to critically review and analyse their successes or failures to inform future design decisions.

What's included in the toolkit?

Toolkit

The currently available units have been written to satisfy the new National Curriculum for Design and Technology. They are designed for teaching at KS3 but individual lessons in some units may also be appropriate for teaching Key Stages 2 or 4, particularly where Year 10 students may not previously have been exposed to certain topics.

  • PowerPoint slides for each lesson
  • Detailed lesson plans
  • Learning objectives and outcomes
  • Statement of which of the Government Guidelines are covered in the unit
  • Worksheets, activities and homework sheets
  • End-of-unit Assessment material
  • Other material and links to online resources

What people say...

As DT teachers we often struggle to find resources that come up to standard so it was refreshing to find your resources which look fantastic by the way!! With this, my mind was made up that the cost of the resources was more than worth it particularly when I saw the offer of spreading the cost over three years.

Andrew White. Head of Design Technology, Monmouth School for Boys

Really useful resources to help build our new schemes of learning throughout D&T curriculum.

Linda Hill. Design and Technology Teacher, Coundon Court
