Project Description

Design Thinking Workshop

LEARN THE SKILLS REQUIRED TO SOLVE PROBLEMS AND EFFECT CHANGE

Outline

During this course, teams will be presented with the challenge of hacking a 3D robotic arm to move along the table. They will be expected to think and act quickly using a technology they have never encountered before.

With only a couple of hours to create a new product, the teams will need to employ rapid iterations of design thinking, experimenting quickly and failing fast.

  • 3D Printed Robotics

  • Design Thinking

  • Rapid Prototyping

Get Hands On

We know that people learn best through making and that we are much more likely to retain knowledge through experiences than powerpoint.

That’s why all of our workshops use our award-winning invention platform and hands-on challenges.

During the Design Thinking Workshop, we set the scene that participants have crash landed their rocket on Mars. In their teams, they will need to learn how to program a 3D printed robotic arm and then reprogram it to solve a challenge against the clock, and save their crew!

Deliverables

At the end of the workshop, there will be some robots that zip across the table, in a slightly Frankenstein manner, and others that never make it out of the starting blocks.

From here we will discuss the merits of rapid prototyping and failing fast, as well as giving something a go even when we’re not sure we have everything we need before getting started.

  • Half-day and full-day workshops

  • Facilitated by experts

  • Train the trainer options available

Results

All participants will leave the workshop having programmed a 3D printed robotic arm, demonstrating just how quickly technology is moving. From here, we usually encourage a separate workshop hosted in-house to explore how different technologies might be used to open big opportunities within your business.
