Week Two in the Design Lab was full of activities as students learned about the Design Thinking/Engineering process through hands-on activities. In Introduction to Engineering, students reflected on the process they used to create their "flinger"--the device they created to fling a cotton ball as far as possible. In Introduction to Design and Fabrication, students created five different versions of a chair for a specific user. Working in groups, students defined their user's needs and created problem statements. Then, in one class period, they made five different iterations of the chair with vastly different materials in a short period of time. See photographs of the process below. They learned the value of rapid prototyping and then reflected on how materials controlled their design.
