Just two weeks ago, we hosted a full day of programming on the 2019 Ohio Design Challenge with our design challenge partners, Ohio Soybean Farmers and Ohio Corn and Wheat. We had a great group and learned about many resources students can use toward this year’s challenge: Work as a team to imagine, design and prototype a solution to increase food security in your life, community, or world.
As a reminder, the design challenge process moves through steps. First, you define the problem. Just last week, we shared Metro Early College Middle School Science Teacher Erika Reeves’ advice on how to narrow the problem down with a design brief. Next up, students will start their background research.
Whether you attended our event or are just following along with your class, here’s a bunch of new resources to get you started.
- Design Challenge 101 Presentation
- Food Insecurity Design Challenge Resources (Including links from your OSLN hub region)
- Slides from the day (from general sessions)
- Pictures from the day (also available on OSLN’s Facebook page)
- Materials from Professor Prototype: Flyer on Invention League, Periodic Table of Design Thinking, Resources for Prototyping, Think Inside the Box activity guide
These materials are also saved in this folder.
Thank you to all of you who have joined the design challenge so far and to all who joined us on October 18. If you’re interested in participating, start preparing your students now and be sure to sign up for future updates about the design challenge.
