Naptitude: Feed your curiosity

Project by 
Bryan Quintanilla
Project Year 
Every student is born with an innate curiosity to make sense of the world. However, by the time students reach high school, where motivation to learn is more important than ever, the drive to learn can greatly diminish whether due to a lack of proper academic preparation, a negative attitude toward school, a lack of purpose, new social pressures or other reasons. Even for students that wish to explore activities more deeply, many are afraid of the social risk they run by showing a strong desire to learn and explore the world around them. Naptitude is a set of napkins designed for use in school cafeterias that promotes curiosity through a series of prompts that encourages students to look at the world in a new way.
