My Bad Design Video

Hi everyone,
This is Preston from class 1-09. Here is my bad design video that I have created. It's about a portable radio that has buttons which could not be recognized to switch radio channels. (I am not insulting this radio and its manufacturer, I am just pointing out some disadvantages of it.) Here is my video:

I suggest that the manufacturer should replace the shapes at the bottom of the buttons to the letters "F.M" and "A.M", or otherwise which allows the user to easily understand what the buttons are for.

Hi there, Preston here.
Here are 3 of my best pictures that I have taken.

2 of these pictures show the bark of trees and its roots, while 1 of it shows the entrance of the school. I have taken them from different perspectives to make them look more interesting and fun to look at. (Sorry about the big gap in between the pictures)

Sustainable Design

Hi everyone, Preston here.
To me, sustainable design is a design of an object which you improve on it and it is sustainable for everybody to use. In objects where other people need them but they could not afford it, that's where we need sustainable design in them. I think that a mini-portable refrigerator is what inspired him to make this solution. The mini refrigerator could be bought to the desert when you are hiking or exploring the desert and when you need a cold drink, you could simply use the mini refrigerator to make an icy cold drink. Or when your refrigerator at home broke down, you could use the mini refrigerator as a replacement.
