Design Project

Fischer Technik Construction Kit


Groups l.jpg

Groups

  • Groups of 4 required

  • Initially by Self Selection

  • DIS/CDE will allocate students to groups where:

    • Self selected groups less than 4

    • Students not allocated to a group


Introduction l.jpg

Introduction

  • Opportunity exists for the development of learning toys within the school curriculum.

  • The National Curriculum’s Key Stages 2, 3 or 4.

  • Based around the use of standard Fischer Technik components.

  • Produce a series of kits that can allow children the opportunity to play and learn either individually or with others by either competition or by comparison of ‘performance’.

  • Each kit will offer a complete solution for a model with opportunities to try out a variety of modifications so the child can assess variations on a theme.

  • It will also offer the opportunity to use the kit to build other, non specified, models using the supplied kit of parts or additional parts from other similar kits.


Brief l.jpg

Brief

  • Develop a proposal for a learning toy based on the Fischer Technik range of products and components that can be used in Key Stages 2, 3 or 4.

  • Your team needs to consider the total design of the product. This should include the standard components used; special mouldings; instructions; packaging and relative costs. The needs of the users (pupils and teacher) should be identified to support the learning opportunities that your proposal will meet.

  • We expect to see working models and a demonstration of what your finished concept can achieve. This should be supported with drawings, visuals and illustrations of the concept with a clear explanation of what it does and how it works.


Concept 1 model bridge l.jpg

Concept 1 : Model Bridge

  • This will be a kit of parts that is designed to be used to construct a model working bridge. The bridge must have moving parts such that it lifts, slides or swings the span out of the way. It will be able to be ‘controlled’ manually on the model base or possibly remotely electrically.


Concept 2 model rough terrain vehicle l.jpg

Concept 2 : Model Rough Terrain Vehicle

  • This will be a kit of parts that is designed to be used to construct a model vehicle capable of travelling over obstacles. It should be able to be constructed using different drive ratios, energy storage types and amounts etc. It should be able to offer the user the opportunity to easily compete against other models built from an identical kit.


Concept 3 model construction vehicles l.jpg

Concept 3 : Model Construction Vehicles

  • This will be a kit of parts that is designed to be used to create a model construction vehicle capable of digging, dozing or moving loads. It should be capable of several operations with minor modifications. It should be able to be constructed using different levers, energy transfers and mounts etc. It should be able to offer the user the opportunity to explore mechanical advantage.


Concept 4 model cranes l.jpg

Concept 4 : Model Cranes

  • This will be a kit of parts that is designed to be used to construct a model working crane. It will be able to lift and move different types of load (e.g. blocks, sand etc) and will be able to be ‘controlled’ manually on the model base or possibly remotely electrically.


Concept 5 model boats l.jpg

Concept 5 : Model Boats

  • This will be a kit of parts that is designed to be used to construct a self propelled model boat which can be constructed using different drive ratios, energy storage types and amounts etc. It should be able to offer the user the opportunity to easily compete against other models built from an identical kit.


Product educational requirements l.jpg

Product Educational Requirements

  • It is important that the kit is able to demonstrate to the user as many of the following principles as the concept allows:

    • Using gears, cams and levers to translate motion types (e.g. rotary into linear)

    • Gear ratios and their effect on torque

    • Different types and designations of levers and their mechanical ‘advantage’

    • Energy transfer and power transmission

    • Triangulation and the concept of structural stiffness

    • Mass and moments and the concept of stability

    • Slip and the concept of static and kinematic friction

    • Displacement and buoyancy

    • Velocity and acceleration.


Prototype parts l.jpg

Prototype Parts

  • Each kit is to primarily include standard items from the current Fischer Technik catalogue. Additional prototype parts will be required to complete the kits. These must include both technical and aesthetic items:

    • Technical Item(s) – These are possible new Technik parts that could be used in a variety of Technik models and must fit the standard parts (e.g. a new variety of standard girder)

    • Aesthetic Item(s) – These are items probably specific to the actual kit being designed and are to be used to make the kit more closely represent the idea of the toy (e.g. a vacuum formed shell or skin to make the kit more closely resemble reality).


Construction l.jpg

Construction

  • The use glue or oil on the plastic components is NOT allowed. Prototyped aesthetic parts may be glued to each other but must only be fixed to any ‘standard’ Technik part by the standard proprietary connectors.


Themes l.jpg

Themes

  • Play

  • Competition

  • Experimentation

  • Invention

  • Extension with other kits they manufacture

  • History of technology

    • You should consider other uses and situations that could make use of the key features of your design concepts.


Objectives l.jpg

Objectives:

  • Defining the brief

  • Designing with technological awareness

  • Designing for the market

  • Designing the complete product package

  • Manufacturing awareness

  • Use of CAD and Rapid prototyping

  • Visual communication of 3D concepts

  • Time planning

  • Team working
