STEM JOURNEY TO POLITEKNIK BALIK PULAU, PENANG
Date: 2nd Oct 2019
THEME: PAPER STRUCTURES

Primary School Challenge

Students explored different methods of doing paper architecture by folding and cutting the paper to make a pavilion design.

Material: scissors, paper

Secondary School Challenge

Based on Eiffel tower design, student mimic the structure by using newspaper and masking tapes.

Material: newspapers, masking tape

Polytechnic Challenge

Students designed a 1:1 structure by repetition of shape using corrugated box structure without glue. Size (500mm x 500mm)

Material: cutter, card board boxes

Weekend Workshops

SEPTEMBER WEEKEND WORKSHOPS
14 SEPTEMBER 2019

PIET MONDRIAN INSPIRED ART

Students will learn about geometric shapes and color as they create a picture in the style of Piet Mondrian. Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian (1872- 1944), was one of the most, important artists of the 20th century. His abstract designs have had a huge influence on graphic design, architecture, and interior design. He was best known for his stylized, geometric designs of black and white grids filled with bright, primary colors. Students will be able to recognize his work still affecting designs in use today

FLAT PACK FURNITURE

Student teams are challenged to design and build architecturally inspired cardboard furniture, guided by the steps of the engineering design process. They cultivate their industrial engineering and design skills to design furnishings that meet functional, aesthetic and financial requirements. Given constraints that include limited building materials and tools, groups research architectural styles and period furnishings. The teams brainstorm ideas, make small-scale quick prototypes, then make detailed plans and create full-scale prototypes of their best solutions. The full-size prototypes are evaluated by peer critique for aesthetic alignment to the targeted architectural style and tested for functionality. After final refinements, teams present their concepts and display their final prototype furnishings in an exhibition.

PENDULUM PAINTING

A pendulum is a fixed object hung from a point so it can swing freely back and forth due to the force of gravity. When discussing the concept with children a great example to use is a swing. As the swing moves back and forth it is demonstrating the physics of a pendulum. The swing is moving back and forth due to the force of gravity on the swing. Students will create an art piece using pendulum principle.

CARD BOX CITY

Students learn about the process of urban development and the principles that make for sound architecture, design, and planning. Student will be assigned their role in the city (engineer, doctors, landscape architects and etc). Students start with a building permit for their desired building type, make a draft sketch of their building and built it up using card box to fill up the city. The students will discuss among themselves to locate their designated building.

ACRYLIC POURING ART

Color theory is a science. Of course, it’s easier for some people to find right colors, but overall, there are specific principles that stand behind any of the successful color compositions, and these rules have been known and used by artists all over the globe for centuries! But what stands behind the color theory? Physics and Biology. Overall, there is no specific color theory for acrylic pouring only.

TOWER CONSTRUCTION

Students are going to build your own tower construction using black drinking straws and pipe cleaners with the inspiration from the Eiffel Tower in Paris designed by the engineer Gustave Eiffel. How many different towers do you know? Towers can be round, square, pointed or leaning. What they have in common is their height – especially compared with their surroundings. They can have different functions, right from a lifeguard tower and a church tower to a water tower and an observation tower. Some towers are solid; others have an open, visible construction.
