Explore Possibilities (45 minutes) > Print/View All Notes
Students will have the opportunity to use the design tool to explore different possibilities for their T-shirt design in this activity. There should be debate as they weigh the pros and cons of different materials and practices within their groups. Encourage them to keep track of their thinking and take notes on page 9 in their Engineering Portfolios. As an extension or alternative to the online tool, allow students to create their T-shirt designs on paper. They may print a blank T-shirt from the design tool. Students should still consider all of the costs related to each design element, manufacturing and packaging that are present in the tool.
