Lightning Bolts - Survival DT Project

posted 17 Mar 2015, 11:13 by Philippa Dancey

After designing a survival shelter that would keep us warm, safe and one that would be waterproof, the pupils build a small scale model of their shelter using natural materials that you would find in the rainforest. The models weren’t tested but they were built using a strong structure (use of triangles) and covered to ensure the shelter would keep us warm and dry. A couple even had camp fires! A great lesson bringing designs to life!
