In DT we designed and made model shelters…
Design: We communicated our ideas through detailed labelled drawings. Exploring, developing and communicating aspects of our designs by creating prototypes.
Technology: We applied our understanding of structures by firstly testing how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce bridges between two chairs. We then evaluated and developed these ideas to make more complex structures by making model Arctic shelters.
