Privacy Screens for Kids – Spring 2019

 
The final project for the Spring 2019 term – Privacy Screens for Kids – is available now.   Hit the link between the paragraphs below.  The assignment asks students to design a family of laser cut privacy screens for preschoolers, and to build 3 individuals at 1:4 scale.

Previously we’ve always built at full scale in the laser cutting projects.  Or at least we’ve tried too, with a hit-or-miss sort of success record.  I’m hopeful that the 1:4 scale will take some of the financial sting out of the projects, minimize catastrophic structural failures, and will force students to truly design in the plural form; you all must build three screens that work, not one screen that works.
