This semester we seek to efficiently build furniture from plywood that is modular and easy to assemble. Directions for how to cut out and build our designs will be published in a printed book for distribution.
Essential Questions: “How can the design of our modular furniture model and promote an environmentally conscious approach to consumption?” What is an environmentally conscious approach to consumption?”
For this project, students made machines which generate a wave like motion. Everyone had to learn about motors, gear ratios, electricity, woodworking, tension and compression, and more. Each project uses the same motor at the same speed, but students modified the gear ratios of their projects to produce waves and different frequencies according to what they thought would be interesting.
