Society Staples has always wanted to tap on the creative ideas of tertiary students to enhance the current ways education and awareness building of Persons with Disabilities is being done. The opportunity came with Mr George Teo, course chair of the Singapore Polytechnic, Business Innovation and Design diploma reached out to us.
Over a 3 months duration, year 2 students used design thinking approaches to guide the entire process. From ideation to execution, students were able to apply their skills and knowledge for good, taking great lengths to understand and analyse the problem, work within the constraints of the organisation and conceptualised innovative solutions that were immediately applicable.
This was one of the more practical and benefitting projects we have done with tertiary institutions, and we look forward to the opportunity to work with Singapore Polytechnic again.
