9 MONTHS  2021-2022  RIT INDUSTRIAL DESIGN BFA CAPSTONE 
Industrial Design Capstone

EDIE: EMBEDDING DESIGN IN EDUCATION

DESIGN STATEMENT: Develop a solution that educates teachers and students on the design process, exploring how theories of design can be utilized in their education. Focus on empowering both students and educators.

SUMMARY OF SOLUTION: Over the course of nine months, I developed a series of six lesson plans and the supplementary material required to introduce design thinking to fourth graders in a Washington state public school setting. This project was inspired by the desire to give back to all the teachers who shaped me into the designer I am today. Design thinking is a multidisciplinary process that benefits students of all ages. Below are links to the final capstone book, lesson plans, student workbooks, persona cards, and classroom posters. After that are the slides from the final presentation of EDIE given in April 2022 at Rochester Institute of Technology.
