Design and Technologies - Project Based Learning!
This fun project is based on the following 'job description' or scenario:
"You have just been selected by the local government to design and create a marketable product from recyclable materials. The local recycling plant is overflowing with items that should be reused and they need your help to create a successful product that the community would be interested in buying. This is a very important role, and one that could make you rich overnight! Your final product should demonstrate true innovation and entrepreneurship."
The local government is counting on YOU!
