Our Year 7 mathematicians were keen to showcase their rotational and reflective symmetry designs. They created unique ideas for duvets, curtains and rugs in the anticipation that the design team at Ikea (Southampton) may select their design to manufacture and sell.
The response from Ikea was most encouraging. They said, ‘We have scanned and posted all of the designs to our internal social network. They will be viewed by our product designers and range leaders. Our textiles team have chosen their favourite three designs and these students have been awarded a prize’.
Congratulations to Ella, Nathan and Ellen who each received a meal voucher for two for use at any Ikea store! Very well done.
