Alu D&T Challenge 2017
The Alu D&T Challenge has been created to inform and enthuse young people about aluminium, its use in our everyday lives and the valuable contribution it can make towards a more sustainable way of life.
The resources are a great way to develop your students’ knowledge, help them to get creative and put their design skills to work; working as part of a team or as an individual. Resources are free to download from this website and include lesson plans and supporting materials including an interactive presentation and short films hosted on our Film Hub.
Each year students’ designs can be entered in the Alu D&T Challenge competition, giving them the chance to have their ideas judged by a panel of industry experts and win some brilliant prizes for themselves and your school.
The 2017 competition will be open for entries from September to December.
Winners will be notified in February 2018 and they and their teachers will be invited to a celebration event at Thinktank Science Museum in Birmingham on 7th March 2018, to meet the judges and receive their prizes.
We are currently in the process of updating the teaching resources and finalising the details of the competition, both of which will be available to download from August. We will notify all registered teachers by email when the resources are available.
Sign up now to be the first to know when the new 2017/18 resources are available and we’ll send you a free classroom poster focusing on the 6Rs of sustainable design.
