This has been the completion of the second week of our Design Thinking Challenge where we’ve engaged students in different aspects of the Design Process. Week 1 was showcasing ASK where we identified a problem and their constraints, week 2 was IMAGINE which had us look at developing possible solutions. For this, we first started with a few brain puzzles for the students to work on individually. This was more about the process and trying out different solutions to work their way through then it was “completing” it, however competition definitely took place. Next we moved to the big meeting room where a scenario was presented for the team to cross the imaginary river together! This forced collaboration and team work, else not completing the challenge. We continually added constraints during this exercise to showcase obstacles you might face while developing solutions, each time it was met with success.
Next week we’re looking forward to more mental activities that are surrounding the idea of PLAN, picking a solution to our problem!
