Youngchan Jeong and Namjun Kang
Abstract—The goal of this study was to provide sustainable science teaching aids to a primary school in the rural area of Vietnam. To solve a sustainability issue, field research, an ideation workshop, and prototyping workshops were conducted, following the HCD Toolkit designed by IDEO. A co-creation workshop was also conducted to modify the final product with teachers of the school. Finally, six kinds of science teaching aids were applied at the primary school. The result, although it has some limitations, showed that HCD is an effective way to design a localized science teaching aids for long-term use.
