Students learned how data might be used in designing new products and services. They first learned about the different types of data that can be collected and then, with the help of experts, they ideated solutions to sustainability challenges, which they developed further through rapid prototyping. The focus was on creating physical devices, such as wearables, rather than screen-based products. Students were encouraged to present their prototypes by acting out their use.
