Personal transport system

Designing a personal transport system for the future.

Engineers are always looking to improve existing transport systems to make them better, more efficient, and widely available to everyone. As new propulsion methods are made smaller, and materials get lighter and stronger, personal transportation systems will be developed.

In this activity, learners will design a futuristic personal transport system. The transport will use a chosen method of propulsion to allow it to fly, carrying an individual or a group of people. Learners will communicate design ideas using sketches, notes, and annotations.

You will need:

  • Projector/whiteboard
  • Sketching equipment

And please do share your learning highlights and final creations with us on social media @IETeducation or send them via email to to be featured in our online gallery.
