Student Reflection - April 17, 2012


This week’s challenge brought innovation right to our doorstep: designing a desk that would be used by our classmates in their college dorms.  Key things to think about while building our prototype were cool design, practical use, and efficient use of space.  It turns out that the winning team made a fold-up desk that hung from the wall, a design that focused on these important concepts as well. Even though our design did not win, we realized from this challenge that we can still move forward with an idea if we are excited about it.  Our desk, a fold-up tree with collapsible and movable leaves as the shelves, is one we were really proud of.  As a result, we  went on to draw this picture, and we hope to make a more exact prototype in the future based off the challenge.
