Design Squad Assembly
Here are a few pictures from our special assembly where we had the opportunity to explain to the whole school what we have been doing in design squad this term.
This year in design squad we have been very busy trying to problem solve.
Our first design brief was to create a way to help endangered animals in any way that we wanted. We discussed sustainability of materials and ecologically friendly ways to help animals survive and we came up with some amazing ideas.
Our next brief was to create an invention for Team GB & N.I.'s Olympic or Paralympic team in order to help improve their performance in Tokyo 2020. We came up with all sorts of wonderful ideas including prosthetic legs, headbands that could read thoughts and send signals to wheelchairs, thermal costumes, smart racetracks and many more innovative ideas.
Each week we would meet up to discuss and share our ideas and help one another to improve their products by thinking critically about each design.
Here are some pictures of our final concept boards where we chose our favourite design/ designs to display.
