Student Reflection - March 20, 2012

The objective was to build a useful bird feeder out of trash.  An interesting observation was that participants made very few changes to the trash materials supplied.   At first I had thought that the trash wouldn’t be used as much as the paper materials provided or the trash would be hidden by the non trash materials.  Instead the trash was prominently featured in the designs. The winning design was the most simple yet effective design.  Other designs were very attractive but also very extravagant and the judges chose the simpler design to be the one they would put up in their backyard, which is a good illustration of the importance of simplicity in design.
