Just in time for the holidays, Mrs. Jill Radwell, new Delran Middle School Technology Education Teacher, virtually taught students the engineer design process, while making a 3D object and stand to support their "hanging decoration". In the image below, the process started with a slot construction design process on paper. Students were challenged to repurpose everyday household items to create a stand from items like the wire hanger on the left, or the pasta box on the right, in the image below.
After multiple design options, the students worked on their specific design pattern in the Vector.com software. The golden retriever and Christmas ball were laser cut, from student designs on the laser cutter at Delran's Fabrication & Innovation Lab.
After multiple design options, the students worked on their specific design pattern in the Vectr.com software. The golden doodle and DMS ornament were laser cut out of repurposed Chromebook boxes, from student designs on the laser cutter at Delran's Fabrication & Innovation Lab.
Students will receive their construction through a coordinated/contactless pickup at the Fab Lab door at DHS. Mrs. Radwell will let students know through Canvas. I
