With the help of a parent in the industry, I’m starting an Innovation/Maker club. To introduce the idea of design thinking, we held a bootcamp based on The Wallet Project from Stanford’s D.School. (Link)
Because our students didn’t use wallets that much, we had them design a backpack for their partner. It was an awesome night. I can’t wait to get started designing and building next month.
This photo shows one of my students explaining how he’s added a self powering battery to a backpack to charge his phone while he is in class. Score!
