This week in C.F.S. we are working on our projects to design a functional product or transform an existing product to help solve a problem of our choice. Every group or student chose a specific problem to solve. Some students chose to work alone, but some students are working together or with a partner. We learned about problems in our community such as child or animal abuse, lack of money for food, and more. After choosing a problem, we researched it and analyzed existing products. Then we decided on new solutions to the problem. Next we created planning drawings and diagrams for our product prototype. We also must create an advertisement to support our project/idea. Most are creating a poster, commercial, or flyer. This week students are working on prototypes and the project will be complete on September 25th.
