Plant Package Containers

Our students recently collaborated with TRIPAQ manufacturing to design and create containers for plant packages students designed this fall. The cardboard containers arrived this week. Students assembled the boxes to see how well they fit the packages. They also created a short video clip in the SeeSaw app explaining what they did and how well their container fit according to the specifications they sent to TRIPAQ. The videos will be posted on soon on SeeSaw so that students can share with their family members. Lastly, students received the design plans for their box that TRIPAQ designers developed. Students were able to assemble miniature versions of their box to take home. What a great project, and a big thanks to TRIPAQ for making this all possible!

STEM Virtual Field Trip


Today our students took a virtual field trip via Facetime to TRIPAQ manufacturing. The company manufactures a wide range of custom package products. EY teacher, Mrs. Johnston’s sister, Mrs. Liddle, works for TRIPAQ, and she hosted our trip through the processes of package design, package graphics, and the mass production of packaging solutions for many products. This experience falls right in line with our current design engineering project on designing plant packages. Our next step will be for our students to design and create plans with specifications for a plant package carrying cases. They will send their plans to TRIPAQ, who in turn will use the plans to create packages and ship them to us for assembly. A big thanks to Mrs. Liddle, Mrs. Johnston, and all involved at TRIPAQ who took time out of their busy day to make this tour possible. ¬†Cool stuff! Stay tuned.
