Nuvotion and Enabled Development met at such a social enterprise
(Makeshift Studio), three separate start-up companies in three
separate but overlapping niches. It wasn't long before they started collaborating. A product that shared and embraced
what it meant to be a socially aware company was chosen to the first
collaborative product. From the initial brainstorming sessions, held
at Makeshift Studios, the Tea Dunker Project was born. The project embraces the core principals of STEAM education with a one day workshop focusing on user centered design utilising the Arduino IDE to demonstrate basic programming concepts in a practical and meaningful way.
Workshop participants will experience how STEAM learning empowers anyone to:
- Recognise and define a problem
- Work in a group to maximise the diversity of contributing ideas
- Brainstorm broad ideas to approach a solution
- Specify all the elements required to implement the solution
- Divide and conquer the various sub tasks
- Test the solution & iterate improvements
All of these skills are critical to modern product and process development, and the participants will experience a concrete example of how a range of technologies can combine to produce something that will benefit society as a whole.
