Our goal is to eliminate the long line in the lunch room every day, and streamline the whole overall lunch experience in the school.
Our idea is to separate the one hour lunch period into two half hour periods, one for lunch and one for recess. Half of the students would go to to lunch first, and half would go to recess. There would be two lunch options available to all students. The students parents will buy the meal for the students the week before the lunch period. There would be two lines for the two different meals, with a picture of the meal being served in front of the line. The lines would operate on a rotating system, where the student first in the lunch line one day would be last in the line the next day.
My prototype is a wristband that creates a more practical line system for the kids in the lunchroom. When the parents order the food for the kid through the app, they insert a colored card with a picture of the kidsâ food for the day into the bracelet. During the lunch period, the kids go into lines based on color of their wristband so that the lines go quicker and the system is more efficient.
My prototype is a bracelet with a clear slot to slip in a the bracelet. The kids would pick numbers out of a hat and slip them into the bracelet to determine their spots in line. This would help equalize and streamline the lines in the cafeteria
My prototype is a simple menu which shows the meal of the day. There is both a picture and a description of the meal and children can choose whether or not they want to bring lunch that day. The menu can be found online and in the cafeteria.
