I had a third grader pull-up a chair during a computer lab session and then the student began drawing a sketched drawing of a 3D rectangular cube. When he was finished he said, “I want you to make this for me.” I did not know what it was supposed to be so I asked and he replied, “It is a pet. A simulation pet from a computer game.”
As one to never discourage creativity, especially that of a budding designer or engineer, I took up the challenge and spent a few hours figuring out how to create this design. This kid kept insisting that I bump his project to the top of my priority list every day for one week even though I had a long list of similar projects to do. I finally gave into the daily requests and completed the design.
When I was done, I handed the simulation pet off to its young designer and asked, “So what is the purpose of the coin?” “Oh! It is when the pet opens a chest and gets a coin and then it destroys it and turns into something.”
I must say that I was pretty impressed with the conceptual design the kid came up on the spot. Kids today are pretty smart.
