Craig Barrowman, Mobile Art School Coordinator at Gray’s recently delivered a workshop to all our S3 Engineering Graphics pupils during the week of 3rd of February.
Pupils took part in the INTEGRATING ELECTRONICS workshop where pupils Design, make and test an object that will support 1 person, 60cm from the ground with limited range materials including electronic circuits. They used LittleBits modular electronic kits, where a design problem was introduced. The classes worked in teams, where they had to problem solve using these electronics along with model making to create design solutions that were tested and then demonstrated their solution to the rest of the class.
In our ever increasingly digitised world, it is becoming more important for designers to be multidisciplinary. This workshop introduced simple electronic systems with a focus on how they can be harnessed to improve the user experience.
