Our little makers now tackled the Design stage of the project. The main goal of the design stage is to put your ideas down on paper to create a rough drawing of what you are going to make. Girls had to work closely in their groups to decide on their main idea would be. They also had to decide what materials they would need and the role each would play in creating the instrument.
These design sessions were full of energy, discussion, chat, ideas, drawing, thinking and teamwork. The girls were busy bees and came up with some fantastic ideas, some of which you can see below. The girls were encouraged to be creative and have fun with their designs, and I think they achieved this rationale!
Now it is time to start making!
