Design Tech - Term 1
Did you know that you can’t fold a piece of paper in
half more than seven times?
Students in Design Technology will be investigating the
world of Paper Engineering this year. Starting out we
are exploring various techniques and mechanisms in
Students will be creating their own presentation using
the skills they acquire. We will have stories literally
leaping off the page!
Students will then create paper automata, a type of
paper-based machine, as well as various design
challenges involving this wonderfully versatile material.
Now go try to fold a piece of paper more than seven
times and let me know how you went.
