Think like a designer: Make a better desk lamp
Homework shouldn't give you headaches, but your desk lamp might. If it's too dim, your lamp could make books hard to read. On the other hand, the glare from a very bright lamp on your book or computer screen might make you squint. Either way, all that extra eye strain can make you tired, less productive, and headachy.
Get creative with design in class
Here's how you can prevent homework headaches: use 3D modeling software to design a smarter desk lamp, with the right base, height, and shade to shed light on any subject. The Project Brief provides background on this desk lamp challenge. Everything else you need to succeed as a designer is included in this project: software tutorial videos to show you the moves in Inventor and Design Thinking videos to walk you through the creative process.
