"Water & Life Project" Installations Using 4 R's Principle

The unit "Water & Life Project installations using 4 R's principle" injected green design ideas into the promotion of our annual project and increased the students' sensitivity in applying environmentally friendly design issues.

The students' task was to design and make an installation to symbolise and promote our annual project "Water & Life" using 4 R' principle (Reduce, Repair, Reuse, Recycle). MYP1 students first discussed the meaning of recycling and how recycling can improve our standard of living while fostering respect for environment in which we live.

They collected ordinary items that might be considered trash (plastic bottles, plastic caps, bulbs, pieces of wood, cardboard boxes, old furniture items, tetra packs, cans, old CDs), reshaped them applying the proper techniques and resourcefully turned trash into treasure.
