Wish for Wash

Design Thinking, Education, Internal Project Recap

2018 Wish for WASH Toilet Design Thinking Class Learning Report

The resulting course, “Giving a S***: Design for a Better World,” is centered around design thinking and sustainability with the goal of having two prototypes of a composting toilet by the end of the 18-day class. The key part of this design challenge is that the composting toilets the students’ design should be a toilet that a family in Decatur (potentially Magnus’ own family) would be willing to use. The following, brief report is a documentation of the methodology, implementation, and reflection process associated with this pilot of the short term course “Giving a S***.” with 8 high school students.
