Students will research and design a product for their school that has environmental benefits.
Create a design solution for your school that will have environmental benefits. These benefits could include using sustainable energy to run or conserving resources such as water. Students will need to consider the following when researching possible design solutions:
What are the needs of the school? (Interview students, teachers and parents)
What facilities does the school have?
What facilities could be improved on?
When students have decided on their design, encourage them to share their ideas with the class to get feedback. This may inform changes/improvements to their design.
Students then need to create a scaled labelled diagram of their design.
Display the designs and ask students to provide feedback based on the following questions:
What works well with the design?
What changes would you suggest to improve the design?
What sorts of military exercises do they practise?
In your own words, describe what personal development is.
