Tsunami hits!

Waterproof containers made from recycled materials.

  • Materials

    We had tested these materials last week. Some were impervious to water whilst others proved useful, due to their size, and could be made impermeable using water-repellent materials.

  • Josh's lockable container.

    Josh decided that due to the ferocity of a tsunami his container would need to be lockable. He hoped that this would protect his family photos from escaping the box!

  • Envy's camera style container.

  • Crisps anyone?

    Quite a few children used the colourful packets, that once contained crisps. Colourful, water repellent and malleable meant they were the ideal material.
