Hello for the very last time.
This is now my 3rd exhibition since I missed the Winter one. However the other two (Bluesky 2018, Winter Exhibition 2017) I’d gone to hadn’t exactly gone well. This year I was determined to make my project better.
We’ve been working on this for about a month.
At the start I was completely out of ideas. But then I was in the middle of a soccer game and I got my toes stepped on. And boom.
I was going to make an insert for my cleats to protect my toes.
With my idea approved from the start, all I had to do was get my prototypes ready and look for materials.
While thinking about what to do for my materials I talked to my teacher who happened to also be a FIFA referee to discuss what would be legal and illegal. She said that as long as the ref couldn’t see what was inside the cleat or it wasn’t to hurt anybody else it was completely legal.
Highlighting and fixing:
The problem about my insert is it would crowd the foot to much so I made a drawing of a cleat that is wider at the tip to fit the insert better.
My teacher made us a template for Keynote that would let us show how we went through our process to get our prototypes.
On our second last day of school, we had our PLP wide spring exhibition.
I think it went pretty well. I know lots of people who came by have kids who play soccer and have seen many times that their kids get their toes stepped on.
It was a really simple final prototype, and super cost-effective. It was a sponge with tape and cardboard cut into the shape of my foot.
Well, that’s it. See ya.
