Design and Technology Creating Solutions….

02 February 2015

“Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
– Steve Jobs 2003

The FOBISIA Design and Technology competition is an opportunity for schools to further excite their students about design and engineering and encourages them to expand their design and technology capability through quick problem solving and collaboration. The competition encourages students to creatively solve a series of short challenges staged throughout the year. So far this year KS4 and KS5 students have taken part in the competition and plans for the KS3 challenge are underway. This year students have been given 2 weeks to solve a complex task that draws on a range of cross-curricular skills and knowledge including, Science, Mathematics, Art and Technology. Students record the whole process from their initial research and designs through to manufacturing and testing, before editing and uploading a 5minute video clip onto YouTube. These videos are then judged on creativity, function and originality.

The latest challenge involved Year 10 students designing and manufacturing a marble run. It was required that the marble should take 35 seconds from entering the run to exiting it.
