BOXES: Design Box Prototype

This series of images documents the design stage of BOXES. Using paper and tape, learners construct the box that will house their circuits for Stage 1: No Brain(er).

The goal of this project is to examine elements of design and to become familiar with the substrate and constructing an object from it. An added activity to supplement the design discussion might be to have participants design a clock using at least three surfaces of the cube. Questions would include placement of timekeeping components, interface design, usability, etc. A focus on time would be an extremely appropriate topic for inclusion to set a conceptual base for the role of time and counters in later stages.
