Designing creative cellphone stands in Technology 8

Students in Mr. Gilday's Technology 8 class recently completed creatively designed and cellphone stand never-before seen on the market. Oh, and all before holiday sales start!

The design needed to be sent to the company for mass production before holiday sales and the manufacturer required a detailed set of technical drawings and a finished prototype to make sure the stand is built correctly.

Students then set out to: Brainstorm and design an amazing cellphone stand; Use drawing tools to create a detailed set of technical drawings (FRONT and TOP views) that included accurate dimensions; Use the design drawings to build a finished prototype; and match exactly the finished prototype and the set of technical drawings.

The results were some one-of-a-kind stands ready for mass production!
