Mechanisms: Automata Toys

 

This Design Technology topic will focus on mechanisms as we aim to design, make and evaluate automata toys.

In this topic we will:

   DESIGN

  • Use research and develop design criteria to inform the design of functional and appealing products that are fit for purpose
  • generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion, annotated sketches and exploded diagrams

    MAKE

  • select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing], accurately

    EVALUATE

  • evaluate their ideas and products against their own design criteria and consider the views of others to improve their work

    TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE

  • apply their understanding of how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce more complex structures
  • understand and use mechanical systems in their products [for example cams]
