Creative Writing Contest
Calling all Primary and Secondary School Students in Singapore! We are inviting you to submit your best science fiction story.
Take a step into the unknown and expand your imagination on what living on space will be like in Year 2030! What do you think are some of the problems or challenges faced?
Provide a solution to address the problem using the Design Thinking Framework. In each of the steps in the design thinking framework, write at least 2-3 sentences to describe the scenario in your mind.
A picture speaks a thousand words, bonus points will be awarded when you draw and upload an image of your solution/invention and how it will be used in space to address the problem identified.
Design Thinking Framework:
Step 1: Create a Persona that is currently living in space.
What is his/her lifestyle in space? What is his/her needs? What are his/her goals?
Step 2: Identify a problem faced by the person.
What is/are problem(s) and challenge(s) faced by this person?
Examples on some of the challenges faced by a person living on earth could be having sustainable food sources, communication with friends and family on earth and the access to medical needs (injury/medication).
Step 3: Based on the challenge(s) identified, think of a solution to the problem(s) faced. Think about products or software you can create/invent to address the problem(s) faced.
Example 1: An invention like the Google Glasses that will enable them to make communication with earth through satellite.
Example 2: Inventions like 3D printers to print food in space.
Example 3: An app coupled with Artificial Intelligence that allows the user to track and monitor vital signs, body chemistry and biological functions like the DxtER™ originally designed by Basil Leaf Technologies.
Step 4: Describe the user experience.
What did he/she experience when using the product/software.
Was it easy for the user to use/navigate around?
