Our new consultants, some of whom work exclusively in Design Lab 3, have been writing down thoughtful observations since their first days working for us. In addition, the consultants are helping to shape the culture of Design Lab 3, which is only in its second year of existence.
Currently, four courses meet in Design Lab 3: Engineering Honors and Engagement, Analytical Product Design, Entrepreneurship Practicum, and Technology Business Models (you can see the schedule here).
Design Lab 3 planning update
On October 15, Raj Brueggemann writes:
The consultants of Design Lab 3 generally overlap schedules on Wednesday afternoons—that gives us the chance for impromptu meetings that are beginning to become a habit. These encounters help the four of us set a direction for how we envision the space. After discussing signage, Jackie and I quickly hashed out the most essential icons needed to better represent Design Lab 1. These table sketches were then transformed into more finished icons in Adobe Illustrator.

We are working on making DL3 a more responsive and personal environment for all. Work is currently underway on new layouts, visual communication, and accessibility, which will help us help you!
Leadership Development Seminar
On October 8, Raj Brueggemann writes:
Students in a Leadership Development Seminar discussed different styles of leadership and formulated a matrix of different styles of leadership. What followed was a group discussion of the ways to resolve group conflict, an examination of each of the 6 students’ leadership styles (some tend to be vision-oriented, others are taskmasters) and a candid conversation about the state of leadership in their personal and professional lives.

A 48-hour gaming contest is underway in DL3, where teams of 4-5 students are creating sketch-maps, codes, images for their video games. The space has been divided with the use of whiteboards, creating semi-private zones for each team, whilst being used for sketching and conceptualizing the games.
