Bridge Construction / Research Activity


 

 

During the Construction Unit of the 7th Grade technology course, students will have to build a random bridge type out of K'nex as a visual aid for their presentation.

 

Once students have finished the construction of their bridges, they will need to research their bridge type and develop a presentation using Microsoft Power Point.

 
 

Graphic Design - Mouse Pad Activity

 

The last part of the mouse pad design involves using the designs the students have come up with and using a thermal press to melt them on to the mouse pad blanks.

 

Before the students can press their mouse pad designs onto the mouse pad blanks, they must first cut their printouts to size so they will fit with as little extra material as possible.

 
 
 

The first project that students will work on in their Technology 7 course is the Mouse Pad Design activity. The first step requires them to find images on the internet.

 

Once students have finished creating their designs in Microsoft Publisher, they will need to reverse the images and print them out.
