This first week of the Stockholm project started in a special way because the whole week is done in the countries of origin with occasional video meetings via software called TEAMS. The first morning meeting started at 9 a.m. and the students introduced themselves successively. Then Jonas presented the week's program to us by answering the various questions that there might be.
Then he told us about the specifications for the client that we call Customer contract. The theme of this week is the construction of a table used for the laptop computer because the actual situation is more towards teleworking. The students have also to design a lining of wall for a customer.
Around 10 a.m. the teacher and designer Arek and Lauri explained a little bit about the design principles and how the students should approach the sketching phase. They then answered the students' questions and then everyone go to work with the aim of showing the first sketches at 1 p.m. and explaining the sketches already made to the others.
Following the explanations Lauri and Arek gave a little new lead which allowed the students to continue the part of the sketches until the end of the day.
On Tuesday morning we started the day again with a videoconference where the students showed the new sketches. Following this Arek and Lauri started them in the manufacture of 1/5 scale models which allows to have a better view of what can pose a problem.
On Wednesday morning we finished the presentation of the models and on the advice of our two designers the students started the manufacture of the prototypes.
At the beginning of the afternoon, we started to discuss in video conference the presentation of the advancement of the prototypes. And at the end of the conference the director of the Swedish establishment spoke to us saying that she really liked what the students had produced until now. Then everyone is back to work.
On Thursday morning, a new videoconference allowed everyone to show the progress of the prototypes. And then the day was dedicated to the end of the production of the prototypes.
On Friday morning each country presented its prototype (s) explaining the different functionalities that they had to integrate. Arek and Lauri found that they worked very well and really enjoyed the different prototypes. Then each student was able to do the evaluation for the week. And at 12 o'clock everyone left the project.
