Design and Fabrication at ‘Iolani School

‘Iolani School students in one of the Wet Lab classes needed a way to photograph and analyze specimens under the microscope. But holding up their iPads and iPhones to take the photos proved to be ineffective and unwieldy. The Design and Fabrication class seized the opportunity to find a solution for their fellow classmates by designing and prototyping a wide range of iPad and iPhone adapters to fit on the microscopes. Providing students with skills for Design Thinking, both classes are housed in ‘Iolani’s IDept in the Sullivan Center for Innovation and Leadership.
