Staples has partnered up for an inventive educational program offering middle school students the opportunity to help to create and design school products that solve some of their everyday problems. The students ideas rendered actual products that are well-designed and resourceful. These new school supplies are no longer in the research and development phase of the business, the Designed by Students products are now available to purchase, and I am genuinely excited to shop to support the cause.
"When it came time to come up with innovative new school supplies, Staples went right to the source for inspiration - students. Because who knows what students need better than themselves? Along with design education experts, aruliden, we brought students from two middle schools into the design process to get their take on what kinds of products would help make the school day easier."
Educator and Innovator, Angela Maiers shares a few of her favorite innovations in these videos.
There is still a chance for students to showcase their talents, Staples is ready to go back to school, they are currently looking for their next generation of inventors and entrepreneurs.
