Several children use musical instruments and computers to make sound effects for a play.
The same basic rule applies to building a cubby as building a house - measure it three times, build it once. This program explores the use of measurement when designing something, and touches briefly on the concept of building to a scale. We visit an architect's office and see the role of computers in modern building design.
How do you design a meal that meets certain criteria? This program looks at the role recipes, ingredients, utensils and culinary flair all play when it comes to preparing food. We follow the methodical steps taken to make a chocolate cake and demonstrate the correct use of cooking utensils.
Can we stop wasting food scraps, have a green thumb and keep worms happy and healthy all at the same time? This program shows that the answer is clearly "yes"! One of nature's perfect ecosystems is explored in this program as children set about building the ideal worm farm.
For the first time, the Makers will pair up in the Faster Craft to create a coordinated couple's costume. In the Master Craft, they'll each show off their love for a furry friend.
This week Richard's turning his attention to the noise, dirt and discomfort that he suffers while on public transport.
As a former colony and island at the edge of Europe, outside influences have always shaped our history, our culture, and our design. Angela and Sandra look at how centuries of migration, invasion and colonisation have resulted in a constant ebb and flow of influence from abroad. We discover a modern take on the Norman Tower House on the campus of Trinity College. We learn how Dutch graphic designers shaped Ireland's visual culture in the 1950s and how the Scandinavian Design Report in 1962 led to the setting up of the influential Kilkenny Design Workshops, bringing a wave of European designers to Ireland to help unlock a uniquely Irish design style. We see how Irish designers and architects embraced these outside influences, and in time went on to influence others as we go inside the award-winning and celebrated Bocconi Institute in Milan, designed by Grafton Architects.
