Learning Opportunities: To develop basic manufacturing skills, processes and appreciate good practice regarding workshop safety; To develop correct use of hand tools and a health and safe working environment; To develop quality finishing techniques when manufacturing a product; To understand the need to work to a set specification; To understand and be able to interpret a working drawing; To develop an understanding of design appreciation and practice reverse engineer / product analysis. Activity Description: Theory applied: The pupils make a short study of material properties, process and constraints; Manufacture: To manufacture all parts of the models from set working drawings. Design Appreciation: to view alternative modifications to the bird Feeder / reverse engineering. Design Applied or Design Opportunity: How could a seed tray be fitted to this design?
An opportunity to Model in card after the project is made!
A Bird Feeder; The finished product Design Applied Now that you have completed this project design a seed tray that could be fitted to the feeder? consider modelling / testing using card How will the feeder be suspended from the tree?
