Today our students took a virtual field trip via Facetime to TRIPAQ manufacturing. The company manufactures a wide range of custom package products. Mrs. Liddle is the sister of former EY teacher, Mrs. Johnston. She 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. Following our tour, students designed and created plans with specifications for plant package corrugated shipping boxes. They sent their plans to TRIPAQ, who in turn will use the plans to create boxes and ship them to us for assembly. A big thanks to Mrs. Liddle, Mrs. Johnston, and all involved at TRIPAQ who are volunteering their time for this project. Cool stuff! Stay tuned.
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!
