Project Brief

Scenario: You are working as a designer for a Design company called ‘Better By Design Ltd.’. Designers have a responsibility to design products that address environmental issues and use sustainable materials. One of your clients has given you the following design brief: You are to design and make a relaxing mood light using cardboard as the main material. Other materials can be used, but the main material must be cardboard. Product designers often look back at historical design movements as a source of inspiration for many modern products. You are to focus upon the ‘Memphis’ design movement and design/make a working prototype light that is clearly influenced by that design movement. The light must be powered by a low voltage power source.

Instructions For Bridging Project Two

Part Two of the Bridging Project is to start using 3D CAD at home. The link to the sign up page is in the box on the right. Please create a free educational account for yourself and then sign in and start using. All I want you to do is is play around with trying to use the cloud based CAD software so that you can use it when we get back to school. There are many tutorirals in the software so you can start at the beginning or just explore yourself. It would be great to see some of your own creations. You can use the share feature to send me a link to your work if you want me to take a look. Try to become comfortable at using the software to create simple designs of your own. Make sure you change the settings to millimetres (mm) I'm really looking forward to teaching about this fantastic subject. Enjoy exploring! Stay safe! Regards Mr York

The Design Challenges

Watch the videos 'Why Does Ice Matter?' and 'What If All The Ice Melted?' I would also recommend that you read the 'Further Reading' section. Pick one of the following design challenges. (Feel free to do them all if you want) Design Challenge One Design an 'Antarctic Research Base Station' for scientists to live and conduct their research. You will need to create a mindmap and keep adding to it during the project as you learn more through your research. Produce a range of sketched ideas that show what the Base Station might look like from the outside and use a plan drawing to show the layout of the indoor space. You will need to show how you will keep the users warm, where they will get their electricity to power the station and what materials you might use to build it. Extension: Build a model of your base station from recycled materials around your home. (Ask first and get an adult to help you). If you have lego you could use it to make a model. Some of you might like to use google sketch up or other software to create your design. Design Challenge Two The ice in the Antarctic is melting at a rate of 13% every ten years. Design a solution to help stop the ice in the Antarctic from melting. Creative thinking is required to solve this serious problem. Can you meet the challenge and suggest some innovative ways to save the planet? Design Challenge Three Design a poster to inform people of what they can do to stop the ice from melting and why ice matters.

Things You Can Do To Stop The Ice Melting

1) Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Reduce garbage by choosing reusable products. If it is something that can’t be reused, try to purchase products with minimum packaging. Recycle paper, plastic, glass, newspaper, and aluminum. 2) Save fuel and walk more: When you save a gallon of fuel you can help keep 9 Kg of CO2 out of the atmosphere. You also get lots of benefits by walking to the office, school, or grocery store. 3) Plant a tree: Plants absorb CO2 and produce oxygen. Planting a tree can help balance the increases of CO2. 4) Eat green: How much of the food in your grocery store is imported from across the world? Transportation is a major contributor of greenhouse gasses. Eat locally grown food to reduce transportation emissions. 5) Use less heat: Use less heat, or just keeping your house 2 degrees lower in winter or 2 degrees higher in summer can make a big difference. 6) Save electricity: Turn off the lights, television, PC, or any other electrical devices when not in use. 7) Use less hot water: Using low flow shower heads, washing your clothes in cold water, or using the energy saving setting on your dishwasher can go a long way. 8) Inform others: Inform family, friends, and colleagues about how they can reduce their carbon footprint by following the tips above.
