Winter camp 2018 - Design Thinking & Bose Speaker Cube Build

Welcome to our first Winter Camp here at Fablab Tacoma! If you are having any issues with registering for this camp, or have any questions, please contact Gaby at

Campers in this camp will learn about the Design Thinking Process and also learn about electromagnets and how speakers work. Campers will then build a Bose Speaker Cube that they take home.

This camp has two sections. The first is design thinking. Design Thinking is a design methodology that provides a solution-based approach to solving problems. Students will learn about the 5 stages in the process: empathise, define, ideate, prototype, and test. The learning will be backed up by hands-on projects.

During the second section campers will learn about magnets and electromagnets, how sound works, how a speaker works, frequency and waveforms. The campers will then assemble a Bose Cube speaker that they can take home after the class.

  • any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch running iOS 8 or newer (except iPad 2)

Compatible with the following devices (for music listening):
