2.00b Toy Product Design Lab PLAYsentations Tonight!
Course 2.00b, more popularly known as the Toy Product Design Lab, is one of those classes that students really get excited to take. Named one of "30 Awesome College Labs" by Popular Science magazine, Toy Lab is yet another shining example of MechE's commitment to hands-on learning. The undergraduate course was started in 2004 by Professor Barry Kudrowitz, Professor David Wallace, and Bill Fienup, with research funding by Hasbro.
Throughout the semester, students are introduced to the product design and development process as they rise to the challenge of developing and designing their own products for play and entertainment, starting with determining customer needs and brainstorming; moving on to sketching, designing, and modeling; and finally prototyping and presenting their final products. They work on a small team of five to six members, conferring with a local elementary school for inspiration and knowledge about the market, as well as with engineering mentors.
Come join us tonight from 7:30-10pm in Room 10-250 for fun and entertainment as students PLAYsent the new and innovative toys they've developed this past semester.
