In this project, students are challenged to redesign their classroom to enhance their own learning environment. By gathering students' opinions through a class questionnaire, positive and negative aspects of the current classroom layout are identified. The class then collaboratively design and 3D print volumetric scale models of the walls, floor, furniture, equipment and displays. Within teams, students use the models to generate multiple design options through play and reconfiguration - adding new elements where required. Final ideas are then presented to the rest of the class, who vote for the best option to be implemented.
