Planning It Out Paused for a Snow Day for D3 @ PSP

Here in Minnesnowta we had a half week of D3 programming. Lots of heavy, wet, perfect snowman building snow (the worst for driving cars!) got dumped on us Tuesday and it’s supposed to keep coming until Thursday morning…

On Tuesday the teens worked from a sketch of their Peace Poster and decided to upgrade their canvas to a huge 3 foot x 3 foot poster to catch everyone’s eye as well as get some smaller business cards printed up with the image to have available as takeaways for the community. Together they addressed the issues that have come up in our feedback sessions to make their poster easier for their audience to understand. Then they all came up with great ideas of where to hang the poster when it’s finished, inside and outside PSP, so we may have a collaborative piece of art that makes its way through a few spaces!
Getting resourceful: a railroad crossing sign as a compass to draw the Earth.

With the snow day Wednesday holding us back just a bit, we will have to get right in to painting on Tuesday and Get It Done!

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
