The third workshop had attendees share their problem statement, solution, and storyboard with Caleb Cram, who works at NASA. Caleb provided feedback to the attendees on their designs, answered any questions, and provided insights on similar projects that have been or are currently being worked on at NASA.
The second workshop began with attendees being able to ask Dr. Samantha Feldman additional questions to delve deeper into her needs and concerns for her assignment on Mars. Attendees then updated the problem statement and created a final solution for Dr. Feldman. At the end of the workshop, attendees took the final solution they created and then created a storyboard for how Dr. Feldman would use the developed solution.
In the first workshop, attendees focused on gaining empathy for their co-designer through an interview to understand their needs, interests, and frustrations. The information gathered during the interview is used to develop a problem statement and sketches of initial solution designs. For this workshop, attendees interacted with a virtual co-designer, Dr. Samantha Feldman, an older adult with Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy selected for a research team traveling to Mars.
