The Quintessential “Kit of Parts”
Our stand alone “Kit of Parts” projects can be ordered any time for extra enrichment for only the shipping cost of $4.99 this semester. I’ll keep track of your order history so that you never receive a repeat – a surprise every time! Each kit is unique and inspired by architecture school design challenges where a student's design solution was limited to a certain collection of materials to solve the problem. The goal/design challenge is to force yourself to use ALL of the materials. Your Kit of Parts will include:
a Project Sheet with a theme prompt. For example, "Snow Monkey Habitat" or "Indoor Skate Park"
a real Wicked Problem to design around such as "Sea level is on the rise and we must design our project on stilts." or "Your client lives in a food desert where shopping for food is not easy. Your project must include a design for a vertical garden."
the [un]usual material suspects from Wicked Workshop's vast studio of resources
PLUS a few extras to keep you on your toes and make you smile.
What is Wicked Workshop?
Wicked Workshop is a maker-based program that introduces kids to decision making strategies, complex problem solving and critical thinking opportunities that are recognized as vital 21st century skills necessary to succeed in work, life and citizenship. We do this through a project-based curriculum that introduces problem solving strategies through the materials and methods of construction and the process of idea making.
