KS3 Curriculum Guide - Year 8 Design Technology
Rotation in DTProduct Design   
Students learn about electronic products through designing and making a “Flashing Alien”. They will learn about simple components such as transistors, resistors and capacitors and how putting them together would perform a function. Students will undertake a pewter casting project using CAD/CAM, learning about metals and their properties. They will continue developing their practical skills using hand tools and power tools.
Assessment: As well as assessing the practical skills throughout the rotation, there will be a written assessment based on all the skills and theory learnt during the course of the module.Key Words and Terms
