Scientific Trip For The 2nd Stage

On February 15th, 2023, the Interior Design Department. Faculty of Engineering at Tishk International University organized a scientific trip for second-year students to Brayaty Ishik Kindergarten as part of their Interior Design Studio Course. The trip was supervised by faculty members Mr. Abdulrazaq Zamil, Mrs. Huda Sabah, and Research Assistant Aisha Asaad.

The primary objective of the trip was to provide students with a hands-on learning experience by observing the kindergarten’s main zones, including the classes, playing area, reception, and other related areas. The tour emphasized the furniture distribution, dimensions based on children’s sizes, spacing, color pallets, accessories, and other design details that enhance the learning and playing environment for children.

The management team at Brayaty Ishik Kindergarten warmly welcomed the staff and students and arranged a comprehensive tour of two buildings with different areas. Throughout the tour, the lecturers explained the main design points, dimensions, positive and negative aspects of the design to the students.

During the scientific trip, students were required to take photos and gather information to prepare a detailed report. The students were also taught how to take as-built measurements and understand the difference in design depending on the users’ needs. Finally, students were asked to make conclusions about what they learned through the trip based on their observations and the teachers’ explanations.

Overall, the scientific trip was a success and a valuable learning opportunity for the students. It provided them with real-life examples and insights into designing for children, helping them to develop their creativity, problem-solving skills, and critical thinking abilities.
