PART A (Preparation)
For the reception, have 1 table. The Finance Manager, Veena Dinesh Wadhwani, will be there, selling the coupons.

Pang Zhi Kai, the Production Manager, will have to be stationed at the stall, next to Veena Dinesh Wadhwani, attending to the customers. He will be in charge of maintaining that the customers are served, and as it is a game station, he is the main player in the success of this stall.

The Marketing Manager, Sneha Vinod will be the one who makes all the posters, advertisements, and other ways to attract customers to our stall. However, she may be free during the actual day itself and she will be helping Pang Zhi Kai with the games, but part 2.

Wong Zhen Yang & Olivia Monterio Chuanxi are both the Publicity Managers. They are to attract customers to our booth and persuade others to play our games. Therefore, to get other's attention, they will be equipped with a Loud speaker each. Also, Wong Zhen Yang may have some "cardboard clothes" on him, where it will display "COME TO S1-05's BOOTH NOW AND YOU MAY BE THE LUCKY WINNER OF A NERF GUN!"

As for me, I am the Chief Executive Officer, and I will be in charge of this entire project. I will have to make sure that everyone is ready and prepared for their roles and scold them if I have to.

The game is played like this:
The customers queue up at the first table, where Veena Dinesh Wadhwani is stationed, They will pay her $2 for 2 "BULLETS OF LUCK" and $5 for 6 "BULLETS OF LUCK"
With the coupons, they will pass it to  Pang Zhi Kai and he will make arrangements to allow the customers to proceed on and play the game.

The customer will have a NERF gun and they will have to shoot down the cups placed infront of them on the table. The cup they shoot down will have a ping pong ball inside, with a few words inscribed on them. Those words will affect the person's game.
eg. Person A plays. He shoots a cup down with a you win. He gets a prize

The second part of the game will be where if you shoot down a cup and the ping pong ball with the words inscribed "Go to the next level". It will be Sneha Vinod manning that area. The part she will be playing is where a few pictures are drawn on cardboard and cut out. Then, they will be pasted on the boxes. (The boxes are those which are found in the staff room) The player will have to knock down the most boxes with only 2 tennis balls.

Finally, once the game is over, Sneha Vinod or Pang Zhi Kai will get the name, class of the player and write his score down. At the end of the day, the highest scorer will win a NERF Gun.

Amount of money required (Estimate): Around $100

I&E Groups

Please post your I&E Groups in the comments below. Then, I ail compile them again.

Red Dot Museum (Malcolm Taong)

It substitutes numbers and hour and minute hands.
It uses letters of numbers and lights to show the time.
It modified the normal design of the clock.
It can be used to display chosen numbers.
It eliminates the hands and number on the normal clocks.
It can rearrange the numbers for easy recognition.

I have learnt that you can design things in a different manner not just the way normal stuff look like

Red dot museum (marcus)

Combine: it combines the bird and the lamp.Modify: It modified the normal ls lamp design.Put to other use: I can be a study lamp at home.Eliminate: The usual shape of a normal lamp.Rearrange: It is place together so it looks like a flock of bird.

Good or Bad Speaker?

Good or a Bad Speaker?
What things contribute to either good or a bad speaker? How will these effect your presentation to the public?

From both videos, first as the girl's, and second as the Josh Light's

1st video

Good points
Bad points
Tone (Mumbling, Too much pauses)
No eye contact

2nd video

Good points

Bad points

Use Word Wonders!
-Steve Jobs' MacBook Air Intro

Playing with the word Air
"There is something in the air. What is it?"

Reinforcing the Quality of Apple Notebook
"Apple makes the best notebook on the planet"

Presenter Traits
Knows his/her product well
Speaks clearly and confidently
Engages his audience by asking rhetorical questions
Eye contact with audience
Gets audience attention

Red Dot Museum Reflections -Henry Lee Jun

This is the AirTube Earphones. It stops the music when you pull it out of your ears and will start playing if you put it in your ears. This is very convenience as sometime the place you are in is very crowded thus very difficult to stop the music, so this is very helpful.

Red Dot Museum Post

Substitute: It substitutes numbers and hour and minute hands
Combine: It combines light and letters
Adapt: It adapts light in it
Modify: It modifyed the normal clock design
Put to other use: It can also be used in SST Classrooms instead of the digital clocks
Eliminate: It eliminates numbers and the clock hands
Rearrange: Maybe it can rearrange its word in a better manner

Learn From It:
I have learnt that design can be better made and interesting 

Although I did not go for the trip, I have a picture

My Favourite Exhibit
It is a clock which uses letters and lights to display the time. It is very nice as in the dark, it also shows the time in  words


Hi Class,

Please post your digital poster up here, thank you!

[22.4.13] Paired Comparison Analysis

Paired Comparison Analysis

Enduring Understandings

  1. It may be sufficient to focus on only one solution.
  2. THere are methods to decide which is the best solution

Recap of Creative Problem Solving

  1. Problem solving is a process.
  2. What are the steps in the Creative PRoblem Solving (CPS) process?
  3. What are the tools that you have learnt for the CPD process?
  4. How are these tools used?

Steps for CPS

Step 1: Understanding the Challenges
Step 2: Identify Underlying Causes and the Root Cause
Step 3: Produce Solution Ideas
Step 4: Select Criteria
Step 5: Application of Criteria
Step 6: Develop an action plan

Evaluation matrix :Selection Criteria

A group of criteria is used to analyse the effectiveness of the solutions and select the best solution.
Each criterion should have a different focus
E.g. Choosing a sports shoe: your 3 criteria could be

  • Cost
  • Function
  • Appeal


  • How do you select evaluations criteria?
  • What happens if the evaluation criteria is good/ bad?


Work on the Creative Problem Solving worksheet and think of as many causes and underlying causes for the problem you had selected as you can and post them as comments.
Then, group with people who are similar and do the rest of the worksheet. Please GIVE the group members to Elvis via the comments.
