Designing to Survive Disaster

Post Date: 18 Apr 18       Category


The Level 3 Design Technology students are working on completing their designs to create a shelter that would enable people to survive in a disaster. Jimmy has used wood, metal and textiles to create a practical, comfortable shelter to live in. He has designed everything himself, including the hinges which he made out of metal. His design enables the dwelling to be flat packed with storage inside. He is currently working on installing the solar panel to power the shelter.
