In the Deep End
1. embedding the demonstration of depth
of knowledge and understanding in the
primary curriculum and 2. developing a
transdisciplinary approach to curriculum
development and delivery in the upper middle
school (Years 7 to 9), whilst retaining the
desired depth of knowledge and understanding.

Rich Task 66 Design, Make and Display a Product

Students will design, or improve the design of, a
purposeful product. They will make the product or
a working model or prototype. As part of a public
display promoting their product, they will flesh
out a (restricted ) marketing plan and explore
the suitability of materials for manufacture.
  • High- quality performance is evidenced by
  • Logical, comprehensible and considered design
    (for model, marketing and display) that shows
    initiative and that highlights important aspects
    of the product with respect to purpose,
    materials, process and potential
  • Incorporation of aesthetic and persuasive
    elements into the model, marketing plan and
  • Refined application of technical processes and
    skills to the production of a well constructed
    model and display.

a design brief for a structure. They will design
an environmentally sensitive and aesthetic
structure to fulfil this brief and communicate
the design through sketches, plans and models.
They will give due consideration to structure and
materials, quantities and costs.
High-quality performance is evidenced by
faithful interpretation of client needs via
comprehensive and well-organised job
specifications. cogent rationalisation in a
