The Prototype Carts are a low-barrier-to-entry way for students to model their ideas. By providing materials that are familiar and accessible, such as markers, stickers, glue sticks, q-tips, etc, we give students the chance to play and design without an expectation of perfection or refinement. They use mindsets for work that is flexible, experimental, and iterative instead of linear, logical, and polished. (The latter kind of work is often what students practice most, and for better or worse its production can become their default mode.)
The carts can be used in your classroom or in one of our spaces. Please contact us if you have questions.
