Chicago Ideas Week - Indoor Recess

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Yesterday, as part of Chicago Ideas Week, I went to the Chicago office of IDEO to work on an exciting brief: “How can we design for indoor recess? Chicago Public schools don’t have a lot of space for indoor recess and it could be used more efficiently. Students don’t have a lot of time so activities and space needs to be directed and accessible for group break-outs.” We went through the entire design process in 10 hours, using Mitchell Elementary School as a prototype, and came up with some great solutions for fun and safe indoor recess.
