After Thanksgiving break, we went back to D3 Lab at Nightingale Middle School, excited to begin a new phase of our TRASHformation program. As you may recall, we completed the waste audit and collected a lot of great materials for building a couple weeks back. The next step was for participating TRASHformers to interview fellow students around campus to gauge interest and collect opinions about the art piece. Since the piece will placed in a prominent spot on campus and will hopefully be something the entire student body can use and enjoy, it was important to do some R & D. Three different pairs of students ventured out to collect data from their classmates, asking questions like, “What should we build? Where should it be located? What color should it be?” Besides collecting information, the interviews also proved to be a great face-t0-face marketing tool for our program. Several students who were unaware of TRASHformation expressed interest in helping us build the piece, and we’re excited to welcome them on board as we progress. This week, we’ll be reviewing the results of the interviews and creating drafts of our art piece. Stay tuned!
