Design Process By; Nate, Kyle, And Kiana
The Problem Money is a problem in this economy. Teachers have to cut out things from their supplies to afford the essentials. One of those things are chart stands. Pocket Charts are a fun and easy way to teach words and literature. But they can’t be used universally without a chart stands. But these chart stands can range from $100 to $180 for one.
Brainstorm Brainstorming is when you get together and come up with various ways to solve a problem. When we brainstormed we came up with a solution. We had the idea to use 2 20 foot long ¾ long PVC pipes. We cut them up and put the together to make a cheap, easy chart stand. It is a quick less than a minute process. The base of the stand is already made and glued together.
Constraints and Criteria Limited time to build Limited finances We had to find a light weight material The scale of the stand had to be universal
Explore Possibilities We could have use wood Could have used aluminum or metal piping Could have glued it together
Selecting a Approach We will select a material that is economical Build the stand that is light weight Design a stand that easy to build
Develop a design approach Chart stand is simple to make. Must be at least 36 inches wide. Chart stand is universal. Easy to take apart and store.
Model or Prototype We made our prototype out of the standard PVC pipe that we are going to make the official models out of. We made the prototype red although we aren’t going to use color for the final model.
Test and Evaluate We tested our prototype multiple times. It worked each time.
Refine We decided not to paint the models because the paint scratched off. We glued the base of the stand to save more time putting it together.
Create or make We made a final model to test the stand.
Communicate results We will communicate the results with the public via website.
