Description:

Learners design different shaped bandages for different purposes. First, they draw their designs on paper. Then, they cut out different shapes from pieces of gauze and tape them to different parts of the body. The activity includes eight different design challenges (potentially for eight different groups), and each challenge gives different constraints that might affect how the bandage is designed. The lesson also includes information on the inventor of the Band-Aid bandage, and the history of germs.
