Product Design


In year 9 the students are encouraged to look for and identify needs and respond to them by developing a range of suitable design ideas, thinking creatively to improve quality of life and become innovators. Students research design and designers from the past and present to help them have a wider understanding of how technological advances have changed how products are designed and manufactured. In year 9 the course starts with designing a travel game, creating an ergonomic chair, designing for a disability, then on to a GCSE style project where students create their own design brief and base their ideas on inspirational designers from the past or present.
