After all this brainstorming, we’ve decided to stick with our original name concept: Project:Interaction.

Our small effort was just one part of a bunch of other small efforts by a handful of dedicated creative people who jumped in and helped make this loose collection of concerned citizens into something worthy of attention.
Their work is beautiful, and I admire that they saw a need and started doing something about it. No planning, no hierarchy, just action. As we continue to flesh out the details of our little project, Derek, Carmen and I can relate to the sometimes scary feeling that nothing is known or planned, but that we’ve found a need and are doing something about it.
After discussing some of our initial thoughts with our SVA IxD MFA chair Liz Danzico, we attempted to refine our objectives by asking the essential questions of who, what, when, where, how, and most importantly how. Our findings are below:
After school, beginning Fall 2010
NYC, public or private schools
Teach kids how to learn about themselves and their environment, and about the relationship between the two
Through prototyping, sketching, iteration and other tools that interaction designers use
To actively teach kids about design by encouraging them to think of themselves as creators.
