What's the problem here? Getting started on your bike shelter design.
Curie Metropolitan high school is a great school to go to. It has a lot of sports and clubs. One of curies problem is probably the transportation. Student sometimes struggle to get to school because of this. Although there is the cta or you can get driven to school. I attend curie high school and if there was a bike shelter I would bring my bike. There are a lot of students that would probably agree with me.
Curie would be better with a bike shelter. Students can take their bikes from and to school. This can save students money by not having to take public transportations.It would be much easier for the student to get to school earlier because they don’t have to wait on a bus or a train. This can even work for teachers. Some teachers can save gas by taking their bike instead of their car.
Having a bike shelter in curie would make life easier for students and teachers. Curie has a room that is not used. This room can be turned into a bike shelter that everyone can use. Having a bike shelter in curie would make curie high school an even better school.
How do you Collect Info for this step of the design process?
My work for the Collect Information step:
I did a survey that asks the students and staff if they would use the bike shelter if it was there.I did a sketch of a room that is already in curie high school and could be turned into a bike shelter.I took pictures of the room also.The survey also asked if they would like the bike sheler to serve not only students and staff but the community also.The room is currently used for In-school suspension but i think they could move that to another room.
How do you Brainstorm Ideas for this step of the design process?
My work for the Brainstorm Ideas step:
How do you Develop Solutions for this step of the design process?
My work for the Develop Solutions step:
I will use the poles that are already in the room and make a wall that will be used to hang up bikes,this will make the bike shelter fit more bikes.
How do you create a Final Design for this step of the design process?
My work for the Final Design step:
This bike shelter will include bike racks all around and on a wall that would be created with the poles that are already there.It will include a bike shop that sells locks,bike parts,air pumps,and bikes.There are enough bike racks included for the public and the students and staff of curie high school.
