Superhero Capes

In Design Technology, we have designed our own superhero capes. Over the next couple of weeks we are going to make our capes but before we can make them we had to investigate which material would make the best cape.

Each group had a material to test. We thought about why each material could be good as a cape and downfalls of each material. We tested the strength of the material and the flexibility of the material. We thought about how good it looks on and whether or not the material was waterproof.


We recorded our findings and ideas as a group and then shared them with the class. We have all agreed that cloth is the best material to use for our capes.

Watch this space for the final product!
