Cracking Ideas December 3, 2007

Posted by admin in : Design & Technology , trackback

The Wallace & Gromit-themed Cracking Ideas site has been produced by the UK Intellectual Property Office. It ties in with an annual competition but there are plenty of standalone resources on the site targetted at the upper end of KS2.

For teachers there are three units of work (Year 6), a great one hour lesson plan (Year 5/6), details on copyright & patents and handy tips on how to encourage innovation in your classroom.

For students there are profiles of ten famous inventors, examples of current innovations and crackpot ideas, home invention activities and tips on how to create, improve and market cracking ideas.

The only slight grumble I have about the site is the tiny text!
