Dietrich Primary FabKids 2809-11
Today we have worked as a group of four and we have been taught how to use a computer and also how to create certain designs printed by a laser printer. As a team we first had to come up with different ideas and also make a few sketches,take measurements and see if the model we have sketched will solve the problem.We drew a computer like sketch and used our creativity to change the concept and make it look even more interesting.
We had to follow a design process as follows:INVESTIGATE,DESIGN,MAKE,EVALUATE AND LASTLY TO COMMUNICATE.After doing all these steps we were told to firstly make the product on cardboard to see if the design process has produced the correct item.We then had to insert a perspex sheet to make our final product.We were very excited during the process and there were also many frustrations but everything worked out as it was planned.We made a few mistakes but we learnt from them.Through out the day we have learnt many different skills and in the future we would like to take part in these workshops.We would like to thank Dr.Ron Beyers for a wonderful and exciting lesson and for inspiring us to become young scientists and engeneers in our upcoming future and also for leaving us with some words of inspiration.
