The Latitude Project Invent team won the Product Pivot award!

Project Invent is a club offered by Latitude, and this year it was sponsored by Mr. Matt and Ms. Lex.  The club allows students to exercise and strengthen their design thinking skills and creativity, and involve their local community in their academics.  The Product Pivot award is presented to teams that display exceptional perseverance and persistence throughout their design process.

Project Invent is a national competition where high school students compete to create a new and unique product that improves the lives of a community. Over the course of several months, students selected a community partner– a person that represents the group they want to design for.

They then conduct empathy interviews with their community partner to gain a better understanding of who they are really designing for. Finally, they will prototype and revise their design to get it ready for Demo Day. You can view Latitude’s presentation here.

On March 31st, the California Demo Day, all the teams come together to present their inventions and take questions from a panel of judges. Not only was Latitude presented with the Product Pivot award, but they also received $500 to continue developing their product.
