Unit 1 – Headphone Holder Project

Originally posted JANUARY 13, 2014

This year I decided to start out with teaching my students about digital fabrication from the start.  In random groups, students had seven two-hour class period to brainstorm, prototype, market, and design a tangle-free headphone holder.  Their final design was then laser cut from 1/4″ plywood and personalized with each student’s name.  It was fast paced but my students had a great time.

The unit’s objectives were

  1. Learn to work as a team
  2. Practice brainstorming and prototyping
  3. Create a 2D and 3D model using a CAD program than can be laser cut
  4. Create and conduct a real market demand survey using Google Forms
