Rachel and I were just featured on the Transforming Education Podcast! Check it out here.
Rachel Bolton-Nasir, and I just completed the fall pilot for Design Solutions, a product design class for 5th and 6th graders. Over the course of 10 weeks the students were introduced to the design process and used it to create their own custom product that solved a problem at their school. The students came up with some fantastic ideas that covered a range of issues including desk organization and bullying. The materials and laser cutting were generously donated by NYC Laser Cut.
