Creative Coastlines

In this lesson you will be challenged to design and print different coastline feature models. To start you will learn about where coastlines come from and all the different ways these are formed. You will then design the 3D model and print it. Then using your model along with the premade coastlines feature models you will test how water interacts with different coastlines.
