Over the course of the last ten or so weeks, the design students have been slaving away under my wicked hand……and the final project I set them was to simply come up with an idea for a product that someone would buy. The images wouldn’t be the thing that counted but the ideas themselves, which they would have to present to the class, myself and Mr. Roberts.
After many questions from other pupils about each presentation, there was a democratic vote and the winner was Rosina Webb with her “Home Helping Robot” idea. What was impressive was the level to which she and most of the other students had really thought about the way things would work and the annotations they had spread out over their design sheets.
Rosina’s robot could vacuum into corners on its own and had extendable arms that could clean, cook or even give your shoulders a rub!
The final design was whisked away by me and developed into the final colour rendering above.
Rosina will receive an Easy Art Pro certificate of achievement (and be forced to have her picture taken with it!)
