What do you get when you challenge children to invent solutions using everyday items?
This was the theme behind the ideation workshop held at the Govt. School for Speech & Hearing Impaired Boys, Hyderabad.
The Ideation workshop started with brainstorming followed by a Maker Workshop where students from class 8 and 9 worked with salvaged materials, toy motors and plastic bottles to create a functioning prototype of a Vacuum Cleaner.
Throughout the workshop, the students were encouraged to think outside the box, test multiple designs, fail and try again. The activity was first of its kind that the students had ever done.
