GVU Research Showcase Spring 2022

Featured Projects

This educational toy concept helps teach children visual-spatial cognitive skills and logical-mathematical reasoning through interactive music creation. Build from LegoMindstorms, the project explores the tool's applications in early stage interactive concept development for designers.
A few Fridays ago, the Public Design Workshop (PDW) led a Design and Policy Jam with the Westside Atlanta Land Trust (WALT) Program. WALT's mission is “to organize the community's power for self-determination; to serve and preserve in-place residents, small business owners, and their successive generations in redeveloping areas.” The jam session supported this mission by tasking participants with researching and producing an argument for a city-wide community land trust (CLT) policy.
We are working with Atlanta Public Schools (APS) to design a school bus information system that streamlines communication between parents, school administrators, and APS. Parents are empowered with pertinent information like late buses and substitute drivers, so they can know when the bus is coming and when it has safely arrived at school. With relevant bus tracking information and the ability to send announcements, the tool helps schools manage their morning arrival and afternoon dismissal processes.
