BGE Famous Buildings Modelling Task

One of the many challenges issued to S1 and S2 during lockdown, pupils were asked to create a model of a famous building from scrap/ recycled materials they had at home.

We had lots of amazing entries with the top award going to Jack in class 1.3. Chloe from 2.6 was a close 2nd, with Alistair from 1.6 finishing off the top 3… Well done to all pupils who submitted a entry.

Generating design ideas

There are many different ways to generate ideas to meet a specification/ design brief. Sometimes when our research doesn’t provide an obvious solution we can use idea generation techniques to help us. The video below is a variation on technique called “taking your pencil for a walk” which your teacher may have already demonstrated in class.

Bench to Table

Watch Jimmy design and build a convertible “Bench to Table.” Normally made from wood, he re-designed this project to be made from metal, starting with a small scale model to understand the action in the pivot points. He then made a profile in full scale before manufacturing they other components required and assembling the finished table.

S1 and S2 Tech

All S1 and S2 pupils have been added to MS Teams. We suggest downloading the app for a better experience than using web based version. For more info click here.
