Our latest Design Technology project has just been completed! We had to investigate freestanding structures, design our own structure and make it. 

First we explored our surroundings by looking at how the playground structures are fixed, what they are made from and how they are made stable. 

We then faced some challenges to create our own stable structures with our groups using either lego, newspaper or lolly sticks. 

Once our investigations were over, we started to design and make our bugs with the aim of them being freestanding. 

Using newspaper, wire and modroc we create the bugs, finishing them today with bright colours, eyes and bobble feet. They all were able to stand on their own!
