Group S: Day 10

This Thursday, we met up with Mr. Fobes and the rest of our class to install the pieces at The New Children's Museum in downtown San Diego. We've been working hard on this project, and are so pleased with the result, so it was exciting to finally get to see the pieces in place and how they would work with the other groups pieces.

When we came to the museum we first moved all the pieces from the storage room up to the lounge area. When we got them in place we started to work on placement, even though the kids will move them around, we want them to have an original place. We also worked on the big sign that explains the project and work process to the visitors. Last we worked on getting up the lampshades that Mr. Fobes been working on. They really are the perfect touch to the lounge area.

 Lounge, Sketches and the Cardboard Lounge-sign.

It was so rewarding to actually see the result of what all the groups have been working on. I think all of us are so proud of what we have accomplished, I know that our group is.

The Cardboard Lounge.

Some of us students stay behind, while other had classes to get back to, and did some finishing touches. Before we left for the day, we actually got to see some kids play in the lounge and moving the stuff around. We thought we knew how they would use all the different pieces when we made them, and we really tried to think like kids do. But when they started to move the stuff around, building things, making obstacle courses, it got so clear to us that it's impossible to try and figure out how they think.

Here's some photos of kids playing in the lounge 

Now the biggest question is: Will any of the pieces break before the opening on Thursday?

Since this probably is our groups last blog post: Thanks for following us! Don't forget to get down to the New Children's Museum and check out the Cardboard Lounge.
