Design & materials
Technology - Materials
Demonstration of the technology process must be clearly shown
Investigate Design Produce Evaluate
Skills development and enhancement will be shown via the following processes.
Drawing and sketching
Hand and power tool usage
Time line management
You are to design and create Pac Man inspired pencil holder.
- The image should be interesting
- The image is to fit on a piece of pine 190mm x 190mm
- The finished product needs to be able to stand up on its own
- The model must use a minimum of 60% of the material
- The model must be 2/3’s round in shape
- The model must be able to hold at least 4 pencils
- Different Materials
- Type of design
- Materials colour
Each student will need to create a piece of work that demonstrates an understanding of each of the steps in the design process. The information may be presented in a poster, Power Point, written report or may be negotiated with your teacher.
All projects must contain evidence of
List of tools and there uses
Risk/ hazard assessment sheet (safety rules)
Picture of finished product
Work shop Safety:
The workshop can be a dangerous place. In respect to this all workshop rules and procedures must be adhered to.
Complete Appropriate ON Guard Testing
No running or throwing of things in the workshop.
All equipment to be used in an appropriate manner as directed
Personal protective equipment to be used as directed
Tools and equipment only to be used when you have permission
Do not waste materials
Do not interfere with other students work
Report any accidents or damage to equipment to your teacher
Follow all instructions carefully
You must provide documented evidence of your investigations. This should be in the form of at least Seven (7) images, photos, sketches
You might consider using the internet, stores, books, magazines etc…
Task 2: Design Sketch
At least 4 sketches for your initial ideas (with annotation)
Task 3: Final design / Preferred Option
Final design to scale with measurements (with annotation)
And validation as to why you chose thisdesign, because I found it interesting and it was short and quick.
Task 4: Construction steps
- Research my 7 designs______
- Drew the deign I picked ______
- Put it to scale______
- I cut my design______
- I sanded my picture to make it into shape______
- I pyro graphed my piece of work______
- __I drew my drilling marks______
- I drilled my pencil holes______
- I put a stand on my piece to make it stand up______
- I painted my work to make it look colourful ______
Task 5:Tools and Uses
Present this in a way that demonstrates an understanding of the tools you used and there possible uses.
Task 6:Risk AssessmentTool or equipment / Hazard / Control
The tool or piece of equipment that you have used. / List all of the hazards that you can think of for this particular tool. / List all of the safety measures that you need to put in place for this particular hazard.
Sanding paper / Metal splinters
Cut my self
Could drill in to other stuff
No danger / Wear eye protection
Wear eye glasses
What new skills did you learn during this project?
I learnt to cut
What did you like, dislike and why?
I liked this project because I got to make my own pencil holder
What did you think was good, bad and why?
It was good because it gave an experience of a work shop
What could or would you improve/change if you had the chance?
