Design Genius Jr.: Adventures in Engineering for Kids invites kids to take charge of the world they wish to create by designing inventions and solutions to challenges faced in an imaginary City X, the first human settlement on another planet. Explore the future through problem solving, design thinking, and engineering. This adventure takes children and adults on an epic journey: humans are leaving Earth, arriving at a new planet, and creating the first settlement there, City X. It's a journey of historic proportions, to a fledgling city on a distant planet, where humanity has a chance to start fresh and design a future that works for everyone. In settling another planet, humans discover a host of challenges, much like those faced on Earth: challenges related to issues of energy, environment, transportation, security, food, safety, and health. Empowered by design thinking and advanced technology, their problems are to be solved by a vast team of young designers on Earth (your children!). With this book, you and yours will be able to develop the tools to explore, understand, imagine, create, and share your own irresistible futures through accessible real-world activities and awesome ideations. Without limits, what can kids create? Design thinking-creative problem solving-will be crucial to resolving the global challenges in business, politics, and the environment facing the next generation. Each book in the Design Genius Jr. series teaches kids this important skill through fun, hands-on projects in a single area of design that challenge them to identify problems, explore possibilities, test ideas, and then come up with original solutions.

"Hooray for clay! Projects that put clay and ceramics centre stage are invaluable - be it in architecture, public sculpture, cups and saucers on your breakfast table, passing on an understanding of the material is invaluable. Clayground Collective are true clay ambassadors. Their extraordinary work is exemplary."--Kate Malone, Ceramic Artist; Judge, BBCTV Great Pottery Throw Down *** "This is not a "how to" book but a "Can you?" book. There is a real passion to discover though materials. This book challenges those with specialist skills to engage the public in that discovery and provides a route to get started."--Amanda Bright, Head of School of Art, U. of Brighton *** "If you're a practitioner setting out to work with schools and the public where do you go for advice? Clay in Common is a great starting point."--Steve Moffitt, Chief Executive, A New Direction *** As clay and ceramic courses decline in schools, craft and hand skills risk being lost. Clay in Common makes a strong case for the vital role of clay in schools and wider society. For teachers, parents, school governors, artist-facilitators and education policy-makers, the book has detailed case studies with ideas for projects and activities that can bridge school and community life.

People, Pens and Paper - Fresh Ideas for Schools to Teach the Creative Process (Paperback): James Wren People, Pens and Paper - Fresh Ideas for Schools to Teach the Creative Process (Paperback)
James Wren
R335 Discovery Miles 3 350 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

People, Pens & Paper is about creative and fresh ideas. It's not a creative rule book, but a suggestive guide of techniques and projects to make the creative process more fluid and more enjoyable for students. Often, it's our setting and mindset that determines creative output, so in order to be truly effective we need to set the scene, and that also includes within ourselves. At this initial stage of the process all we need are paper, pens and people - we keep it organic and focus on generating solutions without any interference. With the projects featured, there's a focus on seeking out solutions for our planet rather than profit and commercialism. These ideas are recorded in a simple sketch book. This book can then help form a 'portfolio' of concepts for each student, so not only do the ideas look to help our world, they also show initiative and entrepreneurial flair, useful for life beyond school. From a marketing campaign for a local charity through to looking at ways to solve traffic issues at a school, teachers will be able to use innovative projects to inspire and also foster habitual ways to conceptualise, be it written or doodled.Readers will find no rules or quick-fixes.People, Pens & Paper is all about the process.
