Event description

Description

IDEA aims to inspire the next generation of Designers, Innovators, Change Makers and Entrepreneurs. Over the course of a week students will work in teams challenged with designing products based upon new/ emerging technologies, such as 3D Printing.

The week will start with studio based creative workshops which will challenge students to develop ideas and equip them with the tools to solve real-world design problems. The focus will be on design activities that capture user feedback and develop insight and understanding in order to produce a clear product vision.

Teams will then progress to prototyping their idea, and classes will include 3D modeling, 3D printing and Laser Cutting etc. Communications workshops will introduce the students to film editing software and each team will create a short film, made on smart phones, that explains their product. Business workshops will focus on entrepreneurship and teams will be helped to develop an elevator pitch based upon their product’s USPs.

​Ultimately, the week will culminate in an exhibition of prototypes, screening of films and elevator pitchs to DIT Hothouse, a representative from Intel as well as other panel members and the public.

​The course will be delivered by DIT lecturing staff and throughout the week teams will be supported by DIT design student who will help them develop their product/ prototype/ film etc. Through out the week, Studio time will be allowed for teams to work independently in order to develop their prototype, film and pitch.

IDEA is aimed at Senior Cycle Secondary School Students i.e. those in Transition, 5th or 6th Year. The course will typically be of interest to students who like STEAM subjects such as Design, Technology, Engineering, Science, Art and Graphics but all are welcome and no prior experience is required.
