MGGS Design Technology: Product Evolution

From Y fronts to Tamagotchis and Model T Fords to Macbook computers, Year 12 Product Design students at Maidstone Grammar School for Girls put their knowledge to the test constructing a product evolution timeline from the 1800’s to the present day. Students were able to apply their own knowledge of historical events to see how materials and products have developed over time, exploring how the likes of the industrial revolution and post war manufacturing radically changed the course of subsequent product design. With some debate over the pros and cons of reusable versus disposable nappies, students were able to discuss their thoughts on where they saw the future of design being headed and how we all, as consumers, need to make a conscious and concerted effort to consider sustainability in everything we do.
