Field School Plastic Bag Design Challenge

Check out the results from the Plastic Bag Challenge!

  • All students at Field School participated in a design challenge to repurpose plastic bags into something useful.

  • Students developed an understanding about material literacy in determining what materials would be a good or poor choice for this challenge.

  • Students collaborated with one another to design an item with repurposed plastic bags that met a need or a want . This promoted the skills of teamwork, collaboration, and negotiation with one another.

  • Each class created one prototype and a “commercial” that shared why their creation was the best.
