Step 1: Provide students with a variety of old “non-recyclable” materials such as circuit boards, machine parts, and other so-called “junk”.
Step 2: Students should each brainstorm ways to take these parts and upcycle them into a piece of wearable art. Students will need to investigate how to create their wearable art through various building/adhesion techniques. Create a sketch and journal building steps.
Step 3: Students create their wearable art using the materials and techniques they explored. Students must make adjustments as necessary through their design process.
Step 4: Students present their finished upcycled wearable art as a gallery presentation to their peers. Provide a written statement that describes the process, materials used and how the parts were transformed for a new purpose.
