Based on Data, Developing and Distributing Products and Educational Materials
During the DO stage, students collected data from their interviews and surveys and research, connected with students changemakers from a school across the country, developed an action plan and split into teams to begin their work. They worked creating, branding, advertising and packaging their calming product - esSCENTial melts. To create the calming wax melts, students collected donations of old crayons, researched and tested scents that are most relaxing, and created a recipe and methodology. To increase awareness students created educational brochures and materials, created a Twitter and Instagram account, developed a website, and shared their product with their school team collaborators from across the country. They collected feedback on their work and, as a result, decided to expand their products. They prototyped 15 versions of scented eye pillows and collaborated with yoga studios to increase awareness around issues of youth mental health.
