Creating prototypes using Spaghetti and Marshmallow

Bula Vinaka – This term we’re using the  ‘Design thinking’ process to help us with our inquiry.

Design thinking is a creative problem-solving process that helps students develop empathy, ideation, and active problem-solving skills. Students learn to understand users, challenge assumptions, and redefine problems to create innovative solutions.

This process involves:

Empathise: Understand the user’s needs and pain points.
Define: Frame the problem as a challenge or opportunity.
Ideate: Generate creative solutions.
Prototype: Build and test low-fidelity solutions.
Test: Get feedback from users and iterate on solutions.

Design thinking is a powerful tool for students to learn how to solve real-world problems in a creative and user-centered way.
