Rapid Problem Solving
While at first the tasks seemed daunting, the teams quickly set to work to come up with solutions.
This capstone project aims to directly address these limitations by developing a child-focused version of this assessment. 20, Diane Levitt, senior director of K-12 education at Cornell Tech, visited campus for a design thinking workshop with community members and students in the Milstein Program in Technology and Humanity.Participants learned how to work as a team to create rapid prototypes, in an attempt to solve real-world problems.Using basic office supplies, plus recycled and other materials, the groups then made mock-ups of their solutions.Finally, the groups shared their prototypes and their thinking process behind their creations.
It is hoped that creating a children’s version of the RAPS (RAPS-K) will address the limitations found in the original RAPS and, once piloted, set a normative baseline for future research.
