An exciting visit from Surface Matter

Surface Matter visit Year 3!

During DT week Year 3  were tasked with creating a brand new box for a Kellogg's cereal bar. We had to think carefully about the properties of different materials and which would be the most suitable for our design. This got us thinking about how materials are made and how new ones are created. We were really lucky to have Scott from Surface Matter come and visit us and show us new and exciting materials that are currently being used by designers. Scott said it's really important for designers to get their hands on materials to feel what they are really like so we got to touch fish leather, moss and bricks made from recycled paper!
