DESIGNING A LAOUDSPEAKER
The students are tasked to build and design their own loudspeaker for a fictive customer group
- Period of implementation: 30 Hours
- Country where the practice was developed : Sweden
- Provider of the practice : Göteborg Tekniska College
- Targetg group: EQF 4 level
How to implement the practice :
The project is divided in two parts.
First one is a pilot study to find what the “customer group” are looking for mostly in materials design and price.
The second part they are tasked with using the information from the pilot study to design and build the speaker.
- - Basic electrical knowledge
- - CAD software (3D modelling)
- - Strength calculation
Students: some basic electrical knowledge (calculation and wireing)
Main learning outcomes from the practice :
- Strength calculation, the process of designing and construct a product.
- Learning how to collect, analyse and rate data.
Needed/Suggested digital tools:
CAD software (Catia)
- The practice was carried: : In Classroom or Lab
Critical points to shift towards STEM learning and solutions:
Simple electrical calculations and strength calculation. If the students have some previous knowledge of this is good to add som time for this.
Positive aspects of participatory learning :
- - Collecting data from diffrent sources.
- - Increased understanding of product development
Negative aspects of participatory learning:
Speaker elements can’t normaly be reused
Included green education (if any):
Some basic understanding in life cycle analysis
