Designing Using Computers at Key Stage 2: Parking Cars
One of the trial units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. In this unit, children design a supermarket car park to a detailed design specification. This task could be linked with a geography local study, as it will highlight the varying needs of the people using a car park.
The purpose of this activity is to give students the opportunity to use the computer as a design
tool to help design an amenity which it is not feasible for them to actually make.
