A Level Design and Technology 3D Product Design at Fulford School
The course is for those who have a genuine interest in product based
design and how it affects our everyday lives. Students are encouraged to
investigate artefacts both past and present and analyse their properties.
Research is carried out through a variety of media including actual product
analysis, site visits, and data collection by use of the internet, magazines
and books. Primary research through photography is also used. Students
will study design and market influences, materials and components, along
with the associated manufacturing processes. Students will produce
coursework projects which will test their designing and making skills.
Presentation skills are developed through use of ICT and by use of a
variety of drawing techniques.
- An interest in design, and the world around us
- Enjoyment of the practical aspects of the subject and a desire to build
on skills that you already have whether that be in wood, metal, plastics
or modelling materials
- An ability to communicate ideas through sketching
- Grade C in a Design Technology subject at GCSE
There are obvious links with art, design and business related work and
courses, but also because of the focus on materials and manufacturing,
there are benefits for those interested in engineering, manufacturing,
advertising and marketing.
