  • DMEM staff and students use humour to enhance creativity

    DMEM researchers Ross Maclachlan and Dr Gillian Hatcher along with a team of four DMEM product design students (Abigail Blunt, Calum Kettles, Ewan McDermott and Daisy Jane Tydeman) presented a workshop at the Manufacturing North East Show at the Metro Arena in Newcastle on the 6th of July. 

    The student team, facilitated by Gillian and Ross, demonstrated a new idea generation technique inspired by the principles and processes of creating improvised comedy. Workshop participants from across manufacturing sectors then tried the technique for themselves which provided basis for a full discussion of idea generation and problem solving in manufacturing organisations. The workshop and technique were positively received with the research team gaining valuable feedback for the project. 

  • DMEM students win Scottish Institute for Enterprise's "I'm an Innovator" competition

    DMEM students Alex Rollings and Alison Cunningham won the Scottish Institute for Enterprise's "I'm an Innovator" competition, which sought to inspire the next generation of social entrepreneurs by challenging students to come up with new ideas which would have a positive social impact.

    Alex and Alison's winning entry, Innobox, used storytelling and problem solving to encourage child's interest in STEM subjects.

    Fellow DMEM students, Glen McMurchy, received second prize  for his entry, a new modular design for wind towers.
