Our Year 10 Design and Technology students have been undertaking mini projects prior to their main GCSE projects, making a storage box and a chocolate box.
For the storage box students, using 2D design had to produce a two dimensional drawing of a storage box. They had to consider the shape and spacing of the tray inside the drawer and the methods of construction, before using their sketch-up to produce their 3D designs.
They then had to design and make an individual chocolate and a promotional gift pack to hold a set of three chocolates. The overall size of the single chocolate would be no larger than 30mm x 30mm x 20mm. The gift pack had to include a brand logo and graphic identity that would appeal to the target market.
All the students worked diligently with great work ethic and creative design ideas. It’s been a great year for Design Technology.
