I got my first glimpse today of what kind of thinkers I am going to have this year. It was really fun to see what kind of ideas my students could come up with to enhance a plain white coffee mug. Yes, there were many off-the-wall ideas, but some very thoughtful ones as well. I liked one with a built-in clock, one with a mood detector, and one that keeps your drink warm through a built-in hot plate.
Students are very eager to “just start building something!” Hopefully they will thank me later when they understand the process of design!
