Year 7 ‘ReDesign Challenge’

Our wonderful Year 7 students have been working hard over the past few weeks on a ‘ReDesign Challenge’ in Design and Engineering.

The students have been investigating projects around their homes that they will ‘ReDesign’ to improve the function, whilst also considering innovation and sustainability. As part of this project students have been demonstrating a wide range of excellent inquiry and analytical skills to help them with their own design ideas and ways that they could improve everyday objects around them.

These activities have included detailed analysis of existing products, surveys and questionnaires to their friends and families about how they interact with everyday products and create mood boards to share the start of their design thinking.

This is only a snapshot of some of the work. We look forward to seeing how each project develops over the coming weeks and look forward to sharing some of their design ideas with you.
