    My names jake bond I'm a product design student from the University of The West of England, going into my third and final year of product design. I've got to undertake a 7 month design project of my choosing.

    One area I'm looking at is improving creativity within children and getting them away from tablets and computers etc.

    Part of research is to come up with as many different ways to address are problems and the more blue sky thinking the better.

    I have an idea which is still really loose but I just wanted to run it by people with scientific knowledge to see if there's anyway it could be achieved.

    I've been trying to think of ways I can reuse waste materials within my designs,

    Basically one of my ideas was to promote more outdoor play by being able to compress grass cuttings into building blocks, effectively larger lego blocks etc. Which I think you'll agree is pretty blue sky! But how the hell would you keep the grass cutting compressed??? Is this are a solution that could be used to lock it in shape? Thats is also safe to use in this application. I probably sound like a moron to you guys but if you don't ask you don't get! If it could be done it could also maybe make for an interesting packing material over polystyrene etc. Again I'm not a scientist so please reply with any information you have

    Thanks for taking the time to read my post.

    Hope to hear from someone soon.
