Working with 5th Graders to Design an Interactive Installation


Design Museum Portland was invited to be part of creating an interactive wall installation with 90 5th graders from Forest Park elementary school. Along with the creative young minds we worked with great collaboratorsADX, Greg Simons, Propel Studio, Intel, Studio G, and Molecule Synth. The kids were broken up into three teams; Design, Electronics, and Woodworking. Dave Laubenthal and Andi Bixel led the Design group taking kids through the design process from brainstorming through to final design. The final piece will live in their school forever!
