STEM student teams will design and prototype concepts to solve the sound issues in the open working environment at CodeScience. The solutions should be effective in creating workspaces that foster collaboration while reducing disruptive sounds. The solutions should also be aesthetically pleasing and consider cost, durability, and buildability. For the business partner, the focus is on the thoughtful, creative design to improve the effectiveness of the open environment workspace. For the students, the focus is on the collaboration and critical thinking skills to solve the sound issues.
