Design and Technology

Design process: think, make, break, repeat.

Designers follow a process to develop and make a product. First in the design process is thinking; this is where designers develop a product outline. To do this, they think about the product, its purpose, the intended users, ideas and inspiration from existing products, the product’s features, the materials and techniques they will use.


Our Autumn Term project will be making an electronic motor which could be used to power a buggy. We will be making model vehicles inspired by our Space topic. Our buggies will be making moon or Mars buggies! This will also require th euse of a pulley sytem to turn the wheels.
