STEAM Design Challenge:
Your school has asked your class to design a new sculpture for a newly refurbished courtyard space. They have asked for the sculpture to be unusual use movement as a theme.
Not all designs have to have a useful purpose. Some things should exist just to look nice or to be entertaining. Kinetic sculptures like wind balls are large creations which move in the wind as well as look nice in a space.
Use Makedo resources and recycled materials to create a large kinetic sculpture.
You are an artist or designer who works with recycled cardboard.
People at your school who enjoy unusual art.
People are interested in large objects that move in the wind.
The product will be a large moving sculpture powered by the wind.
