Bachelor Data Science by Design: D≈S Workshop

Bachelor Data Science by Design Workshop

D≈S is a workshop methodology that allows to generate projects that gather Science and Design.

Subject of the workshop 
D≈S is a workshop methodology that allows to generate projects that gather Science and Design.

The practices of Science and Design contribute to the production of artifacts which are both at the origin of the evolution of modes of perception and thought.
From this, collaboration, confrontation, and contrast the ways of doing design and science, must nourish each other.
Such an approach would then make it possible to open up possibilities, to question current challenges, and above all to empower the actors involved in Science and Design approaches.

This workshop aims to:
  • Create collaborative dynamics between actors of science and design ;
  • Promote the ideation and materialization of ideas, from projection to the field application ;
  • Bring out new research projects.
Participants must imagine a project from a combination of 3 cards:
  • A “Design” card (object, service, digital, space…)
  • A “Science” card (biology, medicine, physics, economics…)
  • A “Preposition” card (with, for, against, without, in…)
These associations invite the creation of projects and reflections that differ according to the relationship between the two fields: Design & Science.

For example:
- Economics - against - object design
- Service design - for - physics
- Mathematics - with - digital design.

Students will be able to rely on an online document to help them understand each discipline and its tools.
In order to facilitate the ideation, students will be able to use a "Thematic" card to design their project idea.
For example: Agricultural transition, energy autonomy, migration, drinking water…"
