Why Co-create the Sunshine Garment?
Last year during the Science Centre’s Tech Art Fair, kids and parents helped us create a v1.0 prototype of the Sunshine Garment. It absorbs the goodness of the sun while also protecting the wearer from any harmful effects. Co-create with Daily Goods Design LABS (DGDL) as we continue with version 2.0!

During the session, you’ll learn the following:

  • Learn more about Daily Goods Design LABS’ human-centred, design-thinking approach and how to apply it to create an innovative design

  • Understand the role you can play during the design process while being encouraged to try multiple approaches to the same problem

  • Learn how people can interact with a garment and how it can adapt to various activities and/or weather and environments

  • Explore the various uses of the garment, plus when, where and why people use it

  • Personalise and customize your own design according to the want-and-need scenarios you’ve imagined. Create an illustrated version that you can share with others for feedback and develop further (should you decide to continue with future design sessions)

Who is it for?

  • Suitable for young and old - a variety of templates and learning approaches are available

  • People who want to learn more about DGDL’s modular design process and the designer’s role within it

  • Those wanting to learn more about adaptable and sustainable garment design

Note: All children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Typical duration of session is: 0.5 hour
