in this project students conceived very individual designs based on their drawing and the requirement of fitting their objects into a water bottle, a sandwich, and one egg. the material was cardboard, tape, and rope. each workshop was about two hours in which the students completed their projects. this elementary school workshop empowered the children through the experience to produce their own lunchbox.
