The Greenhouse team at MakerSpace is conducting an Ideation workshop series aimed at introducing students to Design Thinking, Prototyping and processes that help in delivering the right product to users. The first workshop in the series was Introduction to Design Thinking held by Jason Charles from Design For America, NYU on February 20th. Students learnt how to make the “Perfect watch” by brainstorming and having continuous interviews with users. Simple prototypes were created using resources at MakerSpace and in the shortest of time! We are looking forward to the next set of workshops that aim to provide insights on journey maps, empathy interviews, prototyping tools and storytelling through data.
Please find the links to the events below. Hope to see you at MakerSpace soon!
