Hacking and Tinkering: Sol-a-day

Project Status: Complete

As a group project for my Design Research Methods course, taught by Chris Le Dantec, we were assigned to develop skills using ‘tinkering’ and ‘hacking’ as a research method. We decided to created a device to address Seasonal Affective Disorder. Our goal consisted of raising awareness for Seasonal Affective Disorder and how nature is required for overall health.

soladayMy roles in the project consisted of project manager, content strategist, web developer, and researcher. As project manager, I coordinated the group’s timelines in order to deliver our final product. As content strategist and web developer, I wrote and built the project’s website. As researcher, I conducted comparative analysis of similar studies and projects and wrote my findings on the website.
