Flashlight Design Challenge

Flashlight Design Challenge


Hello and welcome to the Royal design
challenge. Today you will be designing a flashlight to help out teachers. Teachers
everywhere need more help so these flashlights will be designed
specifically to suit them using design thinking my favorite cognition algorithm
to begin with we’ll need to get to know some users and the royal staff has
gathered some of the best teachers around to talk to you about what they
need in a flashlight Friday yes yes Daniel we’re about to hear from
professional users that have real needs in schools that’s that’s a very real
need Daniel thank you so so user number one will be Daniel and the need is in
case the power goes out in the classroom a flashlight to help with that Thank You
Daniel our next user was flown in a great expense from the state of Illinois
one of the former teachers of the year mr. Josh up King Friday yes Bob so sorry
King Friday there is an emergency yes well right now I’m making a video it’s
very important yes Tom the kids came back from Mastro’s
camp yes phenomenal they’ll all be astronauts now
I’m worried about the astral midst of what you know we’re gonna need to take a
closer look at their heads maybe do some okay Oh BOM is our second user our
second design thinking user is Bob who needs a flashlight to help with this social problem with the yeah yeah go go
go begin taking care of that okay our third user was chosen from over 200
applicants they all had to make a one-minute video and write an 8 page
essay titled why I need light I’m really excited to bring to you hold on but yes
Stan freedom how can I help you what’s what’s the problem in the supply closet
it’s too dark Oh can’t stand freedom is our third
Design Thinking user tell us about the supply closet well it’s dark and it’s
long I can’t carry things binder clips enough but the pencils paper
and you know what oh I’m afraid to ask but sort of hygienic so Stan freedom
needs a flashlight to help them hold all the things and finally our keynote
design thinking user with no further
interruptions is famed thicker and smart guy former host of cosmos Carl Sagan
thank you King Friday Carl what are your needs for a flashlight we have to think
beyond light to the very nature of what it means to be a thing that even
reflects what all right but we talked about how we were designing a challenge
for people to make flashlights for teachers and you had a great one we need
to think about the very nature of the beginning of the center of light at this
very start of everything and it is within us King Friday that’s right so
light to support the arts program and the kids performances on the stage right
that’s a great suggestion Carl thank you very much and that’s your Royal Design
Thinking challenge good luck you are running out of time
