Want to make creations as awesome as this one?


Creativity Critical Thinking Communication Collaboration


A mashup is the merging of the design and function of one technology and one random object to produce an entirely new product that uses both pieces creatively and effectively. The final design does not have to use ALL characteristics of the two objects used to create it, but it should use some of each.

“Technological Mashup”

There are two categories: Technology and Object

  • Divide into small groups.
  • Each group will be given one Tech and two Objects.
  • Select one Object to mashup with the one Tech.
  • Each group will use creativity to design a version of this technological mashup that can be used in our world today. (10-15 minutes to design)
  • Present your results: Draw and/or describe creation.
