This project will start with the creation of a climbing wall in the building. A student has designed this already and students in this course will be focused on researching, prototyping, building and testing climbing holds to go on it.

Climbing holds can be made from numerous materials, we will probably make them from wood. (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QHc9irnBVk and https://www.tensionclimbing.com/product-category/holds/). The holds will start simple and small and hope increase in quality and size!

You may join one or both (if you are super psyched) of these project classes.

This will be lots of 'testing' on the climbing wall and perhaps out and about. There will be a few related side tasks too (painting, labelling, setting / marking problems perhaps with an online resource).

This project may expand into designing/creating other "objects" that encourage activity around the school building. (think swings, pull up bars, bachar ladder, peg board, table traverse etc...)
