Material world – ES1
Students investigate how the properties of materials determine their use in design solutions while introducing students to the material sciences and design thinking.
They will investigate, plan and design a chair for their favourite teddy or doll to sit next to them while they are completing their schoolwork at home. There is an optional ‘maker hour’ for students to produce, implement, test and evaluate their favourite toy’s chair.
