During the last few weeks in the O Castro British School Geography Department, Year 8 have been working with Mr Hill on the principles of Industrial Location. They have designed a product, drawn up plans for a factory and used their mapskills to find the best location.
The factors that they needed to consider were, power, employees, transport, space, market, raw materials and flat land. The work was completed as an extended project in both the classroom and at home.
Some students created powerpoint presentations, speeches, architectural plans, prototype products and scale models of their factory. Below are some pictures showing the students at work.
Well done Year 8!
