Today in our groups we had to plan together to make a shoe. The shoe had to be for used for a particular reason like working in a workshop or playing sport. We also had to think about the design. The people who were going to use the shoe, if it was a boy or a girl.
After we drew our design we then used the iPads to create an alien using a design tool. We had to start with a shape like a 3D sphere and add arms and legs. Sometimes it was hard to move the shape where we wanted it to go. Some of us worked really well together and solved our own problems. The best thing was looking at the alien shapes that had already been made using a 3D printer. The printer uses recycled plastic and we are learning that 3D printers can make many things and this will help us in the future because we will be able to make what we need ourselves and we won't need to buy them or have them transported.
