Beginning of March, students in grades 1-5 have started their first design project this past week. They have been researching rollercoasters and designing the ultimate rollercoaster in small groups.
They are being introduced to the LAUNCH cycle which a modified version of the design thinking cycle that artists and engineers use in the real world. Here’s how it works:
- Look, Listen, and Learn
- Ask a Ton of Questions
- Understand the Problem or Process
- Navigate the Ideas
- Create a Prototype
- Highlight What’s Working and Fix What’s Failing
Ready to Launch!
