Year 5 Students Learn About the Design Thinking Process
In Year 5 Design Technologies, the girls were learning about the Design Thinking Process as a way to plan out and develop new and innovative ways to do and make things.
Using this process, the girls were required to design and make a cardboard car using only recycled materials and without any commercial fixatives.
The designs had to be original and use the Makedo kits each Year 5 classroom has.
Their designs were measured on the engineering features used, the aesthetics and the distance the car could travel.
