Solution Design Process
This solution design component allows for the development of a solution for our overarching problem: the lack of nutrition education in schools. The empathize stage of the solution design process allowed us to reflect upon our stakeholder interviews in order to create an empathy map, identify and analyze a “wicked” problem, further identify the need culminating in the process of distilling and analyzing the insight we gained. This stage was then followed by the define stage wherein we identified the five main goals our solution should achieve: interactive, affordable, convenient, involve parents, and holistic (meaning that it should incorporate overall wellbeing). These goals were then integrated into the ideate stage in which we formulated ten potential solution ideas. These ideas were narrowed down to the two most viable ideas. This aided us in transitioning to the prototyping phase. Two prototypes were developed, using the ideas created in the ideate phase, to diagram what the solution would look like if implemented. After creating the prototypes, we then transitioned into the user testing feedback phase. Here, we reconnected with our stakeholders and got feedback regarding both prototypes. Using this feedback, we refined and created our final solution prototype.
