Roses: students loved the free thinking that was attached to this assignment.  Students found what ideas worked, tested ideas, and loved correcting their mistakes.

Thorns: students wanted more time with their creations. More testing time was asked for but we just couldn't fit it into the day.

I learn how amazing it can be when you let children create freely.

As we get ready to move to the prototype phase, spend a few minutes brainstorming simple ways to bring your concept to life. What context will best help you to gain your own insights and to share your idea to obtain feedback from others? Think about how you might do this; through a storyboard, a model, a diagram, role-play, etc.
