nancyg157's work for the Collect Information step:
1)What is the purpose of a school locker?
The purpose of a locker is to keep your stuff that you donâ€™t need there so, that you wont have to carry it around all day long. If you have a lot of heavy books that you have to carry around you could leave them in there. Also to leave your jackets and things for like sports or P.E.
2)How has the way you use a locker changed since you first started school in kindergarten, for example?
The way that I have used my locker really has I guess changed in a way because we didnâ€™t have lockers in kindergarten. We just had a place to hang our jackets and desks had space to store our supplies. Now we donâ€™t have all that we have to use a locker.
3)How many times do you visit and open your locker each day?
I visit my locker around five times a day because my classes are close by.
4)Do teachers or school administrators have any safety or security concerns about lockers? What are they?
Yes, securities at times do have concerns because they donâ€™t know what students might have in there.
5)What types of materials is your locker constructed from?
The material that lockers are made out of are metal.
nancyg157's work for the Brainstorm Ideas step:
> Make a list of all the things you like about your current locker. Ask several friends for their opinions.
-Its a place to keep our things so that we won't have to carry them around.
>Make a list of all the things you dislike about your current locker. Ask several friends for their opinions.
-It doesn't have enough space to put eveything. There is only one self
- We have to share. 2 or 3 people per locker.
- it gets to crowed in the hallways
>Think about your locker not just as a metal box, but as another type of container. What other types of containers do you use each day to store stuff? (Examples: containers for food, clothing, household items)
>Many animals, insects, and plants use containers to store things (Example: bees use honeycombs). Check out some of the images in the Inspiration Gallery for other ideas of strorage units.
- hooks with selfs
- zipper bags
>Keep in mind that your newly-designed locker will be one of many along the hallway.
How will these individual units all fit together? How will several students use their lockers at the same time without bumping into each other?

Well I'm working on my project and I realized that there is no time during school while we are going to be able to use a computer in our locker or even listen to music. So I made it smaller and just enough space to get our normal things in there
nancyg157's work for the Final Design step:
There is not much in my locker. But, that is because everyone will add a little touch to their locker. The locker would go high like by the waist so that we wont have to bend down to get things. It would have to be hung up on the wall with strong screws to support the weight of the locker its self and the things that would go in there . Not big and not small, just enough space so that we could fit the usual things. I have decided this would be better because we really don't need much space because we only have time to be at our lockers for about 3-5 min. So we only need space for books, and coats and even sometimes sport things. My idea of the lock would be like a lock we could scan our ids in and it would only open with our id nobody else's. This is my idea of a locker because it is more conferable and we really need more space in school. Plus lockers are only useful for books and school things not electronics. Even though it would be amazing we just don't have enough time and others would just prefer to go home and use their electronics there.
