The City X Project is an international common core aligned education workshop for students that teaches creative problem solving using 3D technologies and the design process.

Humans have just landed on an alien planet and they’ve staked out an area for their rst city, City X. They need inventions that solve challenges relating to health, safety, communication, transportation, and more. These inventions are to be created by a vast team of young designers all around Earth.

It’s up to the City X designers – teams of students – to solve the real-world problems of 32 characters living in City X. During the workshop, students use the Stanford d.school design process along with 3D modeling and printing technologies to invent, prototype, and test their solutions.

Empathize, Define, & Ideate

Students are introduced to the challenges on City X. Each kid is assigned a character whose problem they will solve. Brainstorming gets the best ideas to start developing.

Prototyping & Testing

Using basic tools like clay, paper, and markers, student designers create prototypes of their inventions. They then pitch their ideas to testing groups of peers and teachers for feedback that can help improve their creations.

Sharing

Students use simple 3D modeling software to create 3D models of their inventions, which can then be printed on a 3D printer in the classroom and can be instantly shared with anyone in the world.

The cost for this workshop is on cost recovery basis only and thus very reasonably priced. It will be lead by an experienced educator who has done several such workshops, from the University of Illinois Extension. He will be supported by mentors from the Design for America chapter and Makerlab Guru's.
