This was an enterprise project to raise funds for a project my students wanted to make.
By making an engine turned coaster KS4 GCSE students will learn and apply knowledge in a practical situation. This knowledge covers use of an engine turning tool and CAD / CAM. This project was used as part of a enterprise activity where students made various products. By using this project in their enterprise activity students gain entrepreneurial skills and begin to see the link between time to make / materials cost Vs sale price.
