Kindergarten through fifth-grade students from J.W. Reason Elementary participated in a design thinking challenge to design a shoe for kids that do not have access to shoes. Students had to empathize, define the problem, ideate, prototype, and test their designs. The top 20 shoe designers were selected from J.W. Reason Elementary based on their creativity, design, and function of their shoes. These chosen creatives took a field trip to the Innovative Learning Hub for three consecutive days to partner with a 7th and 8th-grade student in the BE2TA lab to bring their shoe to life using the 3D printer!
