Welcome to the Expo Project Checklist page for students, teachers and parents. This page will guide you through the 5 stages of the Design Thinking Process for your Innovation Expo challenge journey. The dates mentioned at each stage are a guide to keep you on track.
Find out more about our challenges or submitting by clicking below.
A large part of this process is to reflect on what you have learned, as well as how you have developed as a learner. To help you record your thoughts we have created a Reflection Journal, which you can use to record your journey as you complete each stage of the design thinking process.
Click the image below to access the Reflection Journal.
Stage 1 - Define the Problem
Stage 1 of your Design Thinking Process is Define the Problem. This is where you will conduct research on your chosen challenge. Make sure to take enough time to fully understand who and what this problem impacts and why it is important to find a solution.
