Modern Architects: Redesigning the Human Body
Before Christmas, the grade 7th students analyzed how technology is crucial in supporting human movement through the following questions:
- How does the body move?
- What technologies are helping to recover body movement?
- How is technology helping physical disabilities to evolve?
Throughout this unit students’ were challenged to reflect on their perceptions of physical disabilities. They looked at how prosthetic limbs changed through time and how new technologies are allowing people to expand our concept of the human body. They were then challenged to apply their knowledge in making their own functional prosthetic limbs.
