Kinetics in Design & Technologies

In their Design and Technologies lessons with Leslie Ray our Outdoor Provocation Specialist, the years 5-6 class have been exploring kinetic designs and beginning to create art work that is both interactive and dynamic. Building on a foundation of shapes and movement, students are working towards incorporating changing perspectives in the artwork they create for their designs. These projects not only challenge their critical thinking and creative abilities but embed elements of maths and physics within their design challenges.

The beginnings of this project have seen students create cubes from folded paper which they connected together to create a magic folding cube. The importance of how symmetry and precision effects the outcome of the cubes they produced was discovered through the process. As the term progresses they will explore progressively more complex designs.

“One of the things that has been wonderful about the Bold Park Community School is its opportunity to respond to the needs that are specific to the child ... it is reassuring when a school can deliver at a pace and style that is respectful of the individual's differences and needs AND to demonstrate the relevance of curriculum issues into the application for real life and living.”
