U of W Knowledge Integration

A terrific day at the Knowledge Integration department at the University of Waterloo. Students were engaged in a design workshop where they were asked to produce a blueprint for a student’s best friend: their backpack.  Students were asked to define the problems with their bookbag, identify solutions, create new designs and finally, present their blueprint to the class.
We all enjoyed the challenge of this activity and a lecture from Assistant Professor, Vanessa Schweizer who talked about climate change.
