In this unit, your pupils will apply their engineering design skills to each step of the design process by defining a problem with success criteria, making different prototypes, establishing systematic testing procedures, analysing data to improve their solutions and describing why their solution is the best.
Define a problem by observing a scenario.
Design multiple prototypes in order to find the most effective way to move a robot without using wheels.
Test the efficiency of two different grabber designs and determine the best one based on specific test criteria.
Figure out why something isn't working and fix it.
Design for Someone
Use the complete design process to solve a real-world problem that’s linked to prostheses.
