“Our work is learning how to be empathetic to the user and understand the underlying factors that make up the entire situation,” said MSTI student Chuck Scott. “You delay the technical development until you understand what you need to make for the user, and then you begin the iterative process of making the solution. Using a full design-thinking lens has been interesting because it allows you to tackle any problem.”⁣
