Iteration...gotta love it!

Continuing from my last post where two of my students designed phone stands...a third one rose to the challenge and designed one that holds the phone in a stable way both horizontally and vertically.  Not only this, he managed to make it in less than one-third the amount of time of the original version.
It was so interesting to watch the process of iteration and how the phone stand design changed. From this...
To this...
What is even more awe-inspiring is that due to technology, my students have the opportunity to actually put the engineering-design process to work.  The work of designing and prototyping is not something for their future, but it is here and now.
