HMW help students balance school, work, and life?

As part of the teacher externship, the PIC organized a meeting with IDEO CoLab to discuss the makings of a Makeathon for high school students. I attended the meeting and participated in the brainstorming session with IDEO staff and the teachers to think through an engaging design challenge for the students.

After another follow-up call with IDEO CoLab and further coordination with the teachers, we settled on organizing a Makeathon that centered around the following question: How might we help students balance school, work, and life?

We decided to host the Makeathon during the week of October 22, seizing the opportunity to line up with the first annual statewide STEM week established by the Governor.
