Design Thinking Club Tours Stanford D.School

SMHS Design Thinking Club took a tour of the Stanford Design School on Friday, September 26. The tour was hosted by D.School students, including alumni from the school. Duringrijhdesignthinkin1 the tour, Stanford students explained the design thinking process to the group: Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test. These five words are the steps Design School uses to solving problems.

Zion Shih, a Senior, is the President of Design Thinking Club and was surprised by how much she already knew about the design thinking process. “I was surprised that I kind of knew some of the stuff they were talking about. I didn’t learn nearly as much as I thought I would but I did still learn some things,” Zion said. “It was interesting to see the campus and the different techniques students use. The workspace was really cool to see and the stories the tour guides had were interesting.” Zion has plans to resolve more issues club members face on a daily basis.

New club members are interested to learn about D.School and the process that goes into making a product. Matthew Ang, a Junior, is a new member of the club. “I really like all kinds of problem solving and I have participated in the Tech Challenge a couple years back,” says Matthew. “ The diversity in Stanford D.School surprised me, its not like just one group. There were different types of people working on projects, such as business people and art people.”

Gloria Chua, a member of Design School, was one of the students hosting the tour. “I am a human-centered product and user experience designer, and I’m interested in technology for social good – particularly how technology can transform the way we experience and learn from the world and each other.”says Gloria, explaining why she joined D.School.rijhdesignthinkin2

The tour showed Design Thinking Club that the design thinking process can be applied to real life situations, and not just projects such as the Tech Challenge. Another new club member, Yasmine Scott, a Sophomore, was impressed with the tour. “I wanted to join Design Thinking Club to get more connections in the community and build on new ideas, as well as get involved in problem solving,” says Yasmine. “I learned it takes a lot of steps and prototypes when creating a product.” Yasmine adds “The bathrooms were also life-changing. We should bring them to San Mateo High, since there were disco balls in them.”
