They’ll probably do “figure skating judging” and leave space for the supremely-engineered and supremely-designed. Feel free to skip depending on timing and the nature of your studio ; all of the examples will be posted online in week 2 so the students will see what they missed. Decide on the “design-ness” and “engineering-ness” of the various items you are shown and record the location on the chart below. Write small as there are many items to score. You will have little time to deliberate; go with your gut and then develop an explanation.
