Brit Lit. Experimenting and Adventure Gridding

Last week, we talked about Baltimore rather than work on our design challenge.  This was a good thing.  A powerful conversation.

And today we need to get on point with our design work.

We'll jump right into today with low-res model making.   You'll have access to all of the materials in the room to experiment with various designs for land owner signage and for the thermostat car starter.
At 1:15 we will complete the Adventure Grid and make our map for the rest of the year.

Reading 2.
Wednesday, you will be researching a 2nd article on your topic, reading and responding.  As we go through this project, you should be thinking about a wide variety of topics that fall under your project.

For example, car starter thermostat:  animal cruelty, innovations in car accessories, internet of things, entrepreneurship, kickstarter, little bits cloud bit, new wireless car accessories,

Mudding: land owner rights, land damage from ATVs, responsible trail use, innovative signage, property damage from vehicles, QR codes, game warden concerns,

Blog Post 2. Also, by Friday, you need to have had a conversation with a stakeholder/user of your design.  For example, a pet owner or mechanic (preferably one with experience with remote car starters).  Someone who has posted land or who often rides on posted land.    Find out what bugs them about the current situation and what excites them about your possible solution.  Find out what features they might like to see.
