In this 4 lesson project, students will embark on a design journey to create a functional 3D printed whistle for their sports department. Lesson 1 begins with a presentation and discussion about sound waves, frequency and amplitude. The class will then go through a 3D modelling tutorial to design and 3D print a whistle. The design tutorial will give students the necessary CAD skills to create their own unique whistle, which is developed as part of an engineering design process in lessons 2-4.
