So proud of my son Kyle and a fellow 8th grader Kaiya for spending more than 15 hours going through the IBM Design Thinking process to develop a mobile app design to compete in the Notah Begay III Foundation National Youth App Contest. The goal of the contest was to get native youth (grades 8 to 12) to design a mobile app to combat obesity and type 2 diabetes among native american youth through exercise and diet. One key to getting native youth hooked into mobile technology design and development is to show them the various tasks related to hardware and software design. They had fun learning user centered design and creating content for the contest which was due on 10/31/2018.
Here are a couple images from their submission and a link to their NB3F mobile app design document.
Also I was very happy FatPipe Rio Rancho opened up in September 2018, this company provided a nice meeting space (in between all the sports and other student activities which forced us to meet in the evenings and weekends) to collaborate and get through the design process. Thanks FatPipe Rio Rancho!
