Human Centered Design: Making Recycling FUN!

Working with an interdepartmental graduate team at CSUEB, we used IDEO’s Human Centered Design course to create a potential booth game for Waste Management’s outreach program. We used the four stage curriculum to research, ideate, prototype and user test an interactive experience focused on getting kids excited about 3-Stream recycling. Lovingly dubbed “Trash, Trash: Recycolution!” the game was developed to a mid-resolution prototype. The interactive foot pads were programmed with a Makey-Makey and Processing 3.0.
