Science and food technology: This practical workshop aims to show how a knowledge and understanding of the scientific concepts underpinning food technology can enhance and strengthen teaching and learning. It will highlight how this can support rigorous designing and making with ingredients/food to ensure interesting, fun and worthwhile practical food work. The focus will be on hands on classroom activities.
Serious Engineering: Find out how the Engineering resource box from the James Dyson Foundation can be used in the classroom.
ISO Sketch: Come and see for yourself how the ISO Sketch drawing tool could improve what you students design and sketch. In this workshop you will use the ISO Sketch tool and explore how to use it in your lessons to enhance teaching and learning.
Designing in a circular economy: Product analysis through Teardown Labs are becoming more and more popular and this hands-on workshop highlights ways in which high level design thinking can contribute significantly to product design within a circular economy.
Designing sustainable food systems:
MakeyMakey: Explore this amazing little kit that takes anything that conducts electricity (e.g. fruit) and turns it into an input for your computer. Hack a banana, make a keyboard. This project breaks down the barriers between the D&T disciplines and crosses the curriculum.
Engaging Electronics: This workshop is aimed at teachers who want to develop their curriculum with exciting electronics and systems and control projects. You will be able to use and discuss different project kits to get your creative lesson planning juices flowing.WORKSHOP SOLD OUT
VEX Robotics: Helping students recognise their engineering potential: An introduction to robotics and programming using the VEX IQ system and Modkit software.
Design Toolkit: With the introduction of the new curriculum, bringing industry practices into the D&T classroom has never been so important. In this workshop you will be using strategies and resources, developed by Teach Design, to improve teaching and learning within an industry practices context. WORKSHOP SOLD OUT
Design the Future with Autodesk: This workshop will show case the CAD packages Autodesk have to offer and look at how built in T-Spline technology can really give student projects the WOW factor! Matthew Bell will give an overview of the FREE resources available to UK D&T teachers with a live demo of Inventor 2015.
Heath & Safety Made Easy: A basic introduction into the area of health and safety in D&T, with examples of good practice and the training and support for teachers and technicians on offer from CLEAPSS.
Designing, sketching & rendering like a real designer! This hands on workshop will be led by a real designer who will explore the power and ease of marker pens in product design.
