Resistant Materials and Product Design coursework

Resistant Materials and Product Design coursework

June 18th 2017

Over the last few months, Year 11, 12 and 13 have been designing and making their final products for their Resistant Materials and Product Design coursework. Students have produced a vast range of items including small storage units, educational toys, high end desk organisers and outdoor living spaces.
 
As part of their work, students are encouraged to explore a wide range of processes and materials which is clearly evident in their outcomes. They have experimented with 3D printing, laser cutting, sublimation printing, pewter casting, vacuum forming and many other processes to create their end products. Some students have also used historical influences to inspire their designs.
 
All of the products demonstrate creativity, innovation and an excellent range of practical skills. One particular product, which was designed and manufactured by in Year 13 has utilised the use of concrete casting and has resulted in a beautiful high end product. Matt’s product has also featured on the D&T twitter page and has received much interest and numerous re-tweets, which is a testament to his creativity and ability to experiment with manufacturing processes and materials in a slightly different context.
 
Students have worked extremely hard on their coursework and it has been a pleasure for both students and teachers to see their creative designs and ideas come to fruition.
