Some colleagues and I are in the process of assembling a glyph — a framework of talismans, if you will — designed to teach students about the design thinking process. If it educates parents at the same time, so much the better.
In order to make this bulletin board work, though, I needed to make the seven colored shapes that make up the core of the glyph — an equilateral triangle, a square, a pentagon, a hexagon, a heptagon, and octagon and a circle. They turned out ok, but I think I’m going to have to re-do the pentagon using a semi-super-secret technique, because the sides of the pentagon are not even/regular. All the same, I think they turned out well, and I look forward to putting the bulletin board together tomorrow.
This is a set of curious cut-outs I made tonight. I have to assemble a bulletin board tomorrow on design thinking at my school. I think of these as talismans for the project, and I constructed them by hand, geometrically, with ruler and compass.
