Lockers these days are inefficient and poorly designed for the 21st century. They are hard to open and not big enough for people's needs. Books are getting bigger and jackets/gym clothes take up half the space in David W. Butler's high school lockers. Some students like to customize their lockers to make them be enjoyable. Some use it to help them remember things by posting sticky notes in them. Sometimes students are late to class because they loose track of time at their lockers. Our lockers that we are designing will meet all needs to make lockers better.
We collected information by first deciding what lockers are for and what is put in them. Then we got measurements of the length, width and height. Then the brainstorming came and we decided to make out lockers more space efficienta and helpful.
eye scanner, finger scanner, shelves, taller, air freshners, moveable hangers, made out of recycleable metals, deeper, single lockers, coded lockers, timer until next class sarts, white board, place for images, fit skateboard.
To develop solutions we sketched out our image, we decided to to add the timer, whiteboard, moveable hanger, and shelves. We sketeched our product out and labeled it. The locker will be 6 ft tall and 1 foot wide. This will give students more efficient space. Most student usually share lockers these days, so the height will be perfect fo hanging jackets and storing books for two.
Our final design turned out to be what we were expecting. We were expecting a space efficient, easily accessible, odor free locker. Our goal is complete. To open your locker, you will have to put in a 4 digit code. Inside we have a refreshner that sprays a little everytime it is opened. We have a section at the bottom for your nasty gym clothes. There are two shelves that are removable. There is a movable hanger. The locker is 6 ft tall and a foot wide. Only the inside part of the door, there is a timer on the top that counts down until the tardy bell rings. Under that there is a white board for any purpose needed. And under that there is space for people to put important pictures/memories. This locker will be enjoyable and useful.
