Design Thinking

Design Thinking As A Platform For Our Learning Hub

The Design Thinking Process

We used this Design Thinking Process as a platform when creating the Creator Ops STEAM.


We used Empathy to learn about who would use the room when it is finished and the feeling in it
We used  Ideate to help us to plan and to help us visualize what the room would look like.
We used define to find out what the problem is and how we can solve it.
We used prototype to the room is our prototype
We used feedback to have peoples opinions on what we made

Why we choose the colours:
The bright colours are to keep us feeling happy and they stand out .
we didn't use odd colours because we used colours that all ages will enjoy

The design thinking proocess we all wanted it to be a learning environment where kids can do work so the design came.
 We thought we need a lot of tables for kids to sit on to write and draw on.
Chairs for them to sit on or go on their knees.
We have different sized tables for different needs we had to think about that when our design team where planning and buying things.
We have lily pads for on the ground or for our little tables.
We have medium seats for our medium tables we also thought about peoples back so they didn't get a sore back from being upright for a part of the day.
We found these really cool chairs that are like a stool but with a like circle plastics board underneath and it is able to rock  and lean in different directions.

Our big stools for our big two tables are again the colours are matching other needs in the room but are not the same.

Here are some photos of what the room look like :-)
