Our Middle School multimedia tech class has been working through the 5 step design process while designing bubble wands using the Morphi app. The challenge was to see if students could improve the ability to blow bubbles (better), make it blow cooler bubbles (bolder), and then make the design of the wand look interesting (beautiful).
Students began with designs using exact measurement.
Some first designs were not very successful! LOL!
Students worked through several iterations of designs to address design flaws and to add decorative features. We used our Dremel 3D20 and 3D40 printers to print our projects. Above you can see examples that show how the designs evolved. Below, you can see some of the bubble wands in action!!
Each student created blog posts talking about how they planned and worked through this project. Click here to see their posts:
UPDATE: We were able to have a Google Hangout with Sophia, the developer of the Morphi app! Students enjoyed learning more about app development and shared some suggestions for features to add to Morphi.
Disclosure: As a part of the 2016/17 Dremel 3D Idea Builder Ambassadors program, our school received use of a 3D40 printer.
