Creating shoes

Student Work

IESUmeå’s Year 8 students have been hard at work creating shoes with a 5cm heel  that can withstand their weight, and can survive a walk around the classroom. We learned about the different forces exerted on shoes while walking, and have been discussing solid and stable constructions. The students had to think about different elements of design, and how to best support weight using simple materials from school. They did a fantastic job combining both engineering and creativity!
