The Better Project

03-Sep-21A student reflection on The Better Project; Stage 1 Business Innovation.

The Better Project

Our most recent project was to take something old at MGHS and re-design it. My group chose to design a better uniform. Other groups designed a better pool, a better bathroom, a better change room and a better kitchen.

After brainstorming together our own pains, we set out to find what mattered to the people that use, make and purchase the uniform. We observed and spoke to students and interviewed the principal. Finding out what matters to them helped us to design a more customer-focused uniform.

The best part of the project was pitching our rough prototype to Tracey from UMS (Uniform Management Services). Her opinion helped us refine our ideas so that they might actually work!

A huge thankyou goes out to Tracey Brown from UMS and Zoe Avon from Swanbury Penglase Architects for giving up their valuable time to help us all make our prototypes better.
