Tokoroa’s young people came together last week to share their ideas on how to solve some of their town’s social problems with help from Wintec, local councils and South Waikato YMCA.
A co-creation space where students work with industry partners to solve complex problems
- Industry driven problems
- Using human centred design
- Interdisciplinary Teams
- Positive mind-set
There’s no signage on the window of Wintec’s Design Hub, just the letter D made of coloured Post-it notes; but now the creative initiative is invited to join the Design Factory Global Network, the D will soon make way for New Zealand’s first Design Factory.
Making breakfast and keeping the coffee coming for a room full of industry partners and Wintec staff was one of the easier challenges given to the first intake of students at Wintec’s Design Hub.
