is recognized in a number of different ways. One of these ways that is popular within our culture is the awarding of medals. Medals usually take a specific form (circular like the example below). Can these be redesigned to make their form more interesting and relevant to the awarded subject? Design Problem in my own words: In our school community, achievements in cultures are recognized in different ways. Medals are a popular award within our school community. These medals are usually in a circular shape. Can we have a redesigned version of these so that they can display a more interesting shape, be more relevant to the awarded subject and also more specifically about the awarded subject. Design Brief: To solve the problem, I will redesign a medal in shape, color and size. It will be a more interesting shape and the shape, color and size will be in a way which is relevant to the awarded subject. Medal Brainstorm:
Inquiry Problems in order of importance What is melting point of Pewter? What are the safety precautions of using the different machines (example, scroll saw, laser cutter, sand machine, drill press) How to represent the awarded subject in the medal? How to do you use the laser cutter? What are some of the subjects we can give medals for Who is this medal targeted to How thin can acrylic become What are some contrasting colors that we can use on our medal What is Pewter Casting How to Cast Pewter Answer to Inquiry Questions: Inquiry Problems in order of importance What is melting point of Pewter? What are the safety precautions of using the different machines (example, scroll saw, laser cutter, sand machine, drill press)
How I will find the answer to these questions Internet research Look through books or get explanations from the teacher Talk with other students about Nist related symbols that can be showed on the medal Find out from an expert House Reps Look at Criterion Internet Research (Information may vary due to resources we have) Color Wheel, Internet, Art Room Internet Internet
Answer 170–240 °C - Wear Eye Protection all the time - Keep Work Area Clean - Make Adjustments to the machine only when it is turned of and unplugged - Keep Body Parts out of the way of the blade - If the user has long hair they must tie it back - Make sure there is lots of light in the working space to reduce chance of an accident - If the sound is loud use hearing protection - Make sure the dust is controlled with a filter system or wear a mask - Concentrate when using the equipment - Equipment can be hot so have temperature in control - Do not leave a machine on when you or someone else is not using it - If you feel distracted stop using the machine immediately

What is Pewter Casting How to Cast Pewter
Process of pouring Pewter in Molten Metal Form in the a form to make an object - Make a Hardboard Mould to pour the molten pewter in to form the shape - Put the mould together to make the shape - Heat Pewter till it is in its molten metal form - Pour the molten metal into the mould - Leave it to cool - When it is cool remove the mould - Clip the piece of metal to solder the back
Pewter in its Molten Metal Form gained by heating pewter to its melting point which is form 170 Degrees Celsius to 240 Degrees Celsius
Process of Casting Pewter
Chunks of Pewter in its Solid Form
Hearing Protection for when using louder machines
Eye Protection for when using machines that give out a lot of dust or when using sharp machines or objects

Awarded to: The Most Caring Person What does it Mean to be Caring: Aware of the others needs To Listen to Others
To understand others To be able to accept others To be able to work with others To take interest in someone or something or anything and try to the best of your ability to make sure they are in a good condition To show concern towards others To interact with others and make them feel safe
Caring about our world and environment and everything in it. This picture definitely shows care as it was the first word that came into my mind when I saw this picture. I has a deep meaning of concern for something which is the definition of care
This Picture shows the phrase caring for our neighbours. On a different scale it means caring for the people around us, it has bright colours saying that if everybody cares everybody is happy
It shows Human Interaction as the words says. It directly shows care as the kid on the hospital bed is receiving care.
Shaking hands addresses the word caring in a way that people are accepting each other and able to understand each other
There are many ways I can show caring in my medal, but only some ways can be very effective and have a strong message that the person who got awarded is a truly caring person Bibliography:
