Status Prism

TechHive Winter 2017: Day 5

Today was all about the various stages of design.

Design → Build → Test→ Repeat! 

In the bottom row interns finished the last stages of our first group build. Attaching eyes, re-attaching them after they fell off, checking that wires were plugged in and skillfully handling all the minutiae that goes into making sure our robots work perfectly!

The top row engaged in a completely different part of the design process (the funnest part actually): Design! Groups worked together to redesign, an intern named, tool called "The Status Prism" that helps facilitators figure out how students are doing in their tasks from a quick glance. From learning the basics of breadboards and circuitry all the way through executing the their ideas with cardboard and wires interns got a very detailed look into design this week!
