Smart Graphic products DVD endorsed by OCR for the OCR GCE Design and Technology: Product Design specification

by Kate Conway on December 17, 2012

Now endorsed by OCR, inspire your students with our DVD resource: Smart Graphic Products.  

Its not always practical or affordable to provide your students with as much experience of smart materials as you would like.  So why not use Pumpkin's DVDs which include carefully selected film clips shot in industrial settings that focus on how industry is using smart materials.   You will guarantee that your students get fantastic, up-to-date, relevant case studies for their written examinations, as well as ideas on how smart materials can be incorporated into their own designs.

Pumpkin's Smart Graphic Products provides the core knowledge required on smart materials by the OCR GCE J303 Graphic Products specification.  It includes examples of labels and packaging that use thermochromic inks, emergency and safety signage that incorporate phosphorescent and fluorescent paints, and inks and photochromic dyes that are used for anti-counterfeiting measures, sun tan cream packaging and reactive glasses.

This DVD forms part of a suite of materials produced by Pumpkin on smart materials for GCSE and GCE D&T students. Each DVD  resource packs include at least 30 minutes of video material, as well as student activities aimed at a range of abilities and a wealth of background information written by our specialist consultants.

Illustrate the applications of QTC, thermochromatic plastics and shape memory alloys with our resource on Smart Resistant Materials. 

And if its smart textiles you are after, Interactive, Smart and Modern Textiles contains film clips that provide explanations, examples and applications of wearable electronics, piezo-electric textiles, textiles that generate power and materials like Kevlar, Nomex and D30.

All our titles are currently available with a 10% discount.
