Summary - Out now

This hands-on unit follows a series of easy-to-follow tasks that develop students’ drawing and modelling skills. The unit moves quickly from basic to advanced drawing and modelling activities offering an easily extendable variety of skills based lessons. Students are encouraged to work out which is the most appropriate format to use for specific tasks. The unit concludes in the development of CAD models using freely available software.

Access to a computer suite will be required for the final challenge in SketchUp.

A support tutorial is included for students to use the new online version of SketchUp at home.

What people say...

I’m a new teacher in my first year and can’t imagine the mess I’d be in without the PG Online lesson plans to work with.

Derek Jones. Design and Technology Teacher, London Design & Engineering LTC

The resources are concise, easily accessible to students and staff, and more importantly fun for the students.
