Short description
This guide covers how to use prototyping in a design thinking context using digital fabrication and electronics for the age group 8 to 12 year olds. First step is an ideation phase in which divergent thinking is stimulated. Children explore a societal problem and come up with different directions of solving problems. After the exploration of different solutions, there is a convergent phase. Children will need to choose a solution and start prototyping, which means the children will have to narrow down and become more precise and concrete in their ideas.
