Design Thinking in the Classroom: Rapid Prototyping with Low or No Tech LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

These low-fidelity prototypes--often constructed from everyday objects and materials--are intended simply to convey a rough idea, allowing designers to adapt and iterate quickly based on feedback provided by the users for whom they are designing. This session will explore the fundamentals of rapid prototyping as both a teaching method and a practice that can be used by educators to design innovative solutions to problems faced in their schools.
