This will be a design project where the students will create a t-shirt design for an upcoming Solar Car Race using digital fabrication. The Junior Solar Sprint (JSS),https://www.usaeop.com/program/jss/ provides a hands-on opportunity for students to apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts, along with leadership and 21st century skills such as creativity, teamwork, and problem-solving skills, as they design, construct, and race a solar-powered car. The students were told to think of a logo design that incorporates the Solar Car Race, and our school name, Warrensville Heights Elementary School or school mascot, the tigers. The t-shirt design will begin with google draw.

I can be responsible for various activities throughout a design process within a group under instructor guidance.
I can follow instructor guided steps that link a software to a machine to produce a simple physical artifact.
I can safely conduct myself in a Fab Lab and observe operations under instructor guidance.
I can create a design or logo that combines more than one concept
Introduce the concept of logo. Utilize the game Blooket to gain interest and introduce logos students are familiar with. Discuss logos they are familiar with and why. Talk about how to incorporate our school logo and the Solar Car Project
Logos reflect the values of a group or individual. They can change to reflect updated ideals held by those they represent. Students will in groups to create a list of criteria and constraints around the design. Students will use google draw to create their designs
The link will provide access to another lesson similar to this lesson using a logo design.
This link is to a t-shirt logo design similar to the lesson except we will not be using paint.
