In groups of 3 we were set a task to create a tower made only of our own shoes that we brought in. We could not use and adhesives for the shoes to stack up, so this was challenging our ability to problem solve.
Our first idea was to balance the shoes on top of each other, but we soon found out this was not the best idea as it came crashing down. We then thought about using the holes in the shoe for another to slot into it, this gave support for our tower. This was the best way for us to stack our shoe tower and we was surprised of the sturdiness of it. We made a few different towers using this method.
This task helped us come together as a team and think of different ideas to overcome the problem. I believe this is an essential ability to have being a designer.
