Branding Student-Designed Products: Putting STEM into Practice

My students need a multi-function heat press and embossing stamper with foil and vinyl to enrich and practice the branding step of their small group innovation projects.

My Students

My students are curious, creative, and love learning. They are constantly in motion, whether working together in small groups developing skits and props for Ancient Civilization presentations, individually rendering 3D objects in TinkerCAD in our MakerSpace, or playing baseball with the entire class. Students range in age from 10 to 12 and attend our public, suburban school.

"Making" empowers students and increases engagement and ownership of their own learning.

A variety of project options in our MakerSpace provide students choice in their student products (deliverables). Students enjoy working on projects that they select and have meaning for them; having a voice and choice makes a world of difference!

My Project

As education proponent and “Voice of the American Teacher” Robert John Meehan states, “Teaching children is an accomplishment; getting children excited about learning is an achievement.”

Student excitement is palpable when learning is hands-on and minds-on; our MakerSpace provides students such opportunities (always incorporating STEM, with an emphasis on engineering).

After attending a 4-day Bowers Institute Project Invent workshop this summer, I realized that my students need a multi-function heat press and embossing stamper to solidify their understanding of branding as they learn design and engineering skills as they develop their innovative projects. Following the Design Thinking process of Project Invent, I will mentor small groups of students to develop community partnerships, conduct interviews of community partners as part of need-finding research, synthesize and ideate, select an idea and develop prototypes, conduct project planning, develop a business plan, and create and deliver a fundraising pitch.
