How Might We Improve School Storage for All Middle School Students

From 2009 through 2014 students in Perkiomen Valley Middle School East Connections classes designed solutions to all manners of storage issues in their daily lives.  Employing design thinking, students worked in teams to interview fellow students, custodial staff, administration, and teachers to build empathy for all the users impacted by this issue.  Each year students designed projects that looked at the lockers, backpacks, desks, and even at the usefulness of textbooks themselves.  For two years students volunteered to have their designs critiqued by engineers and designers from Knoll Furniture in East Greenville, PA.
