THE PROBLEM
The Costa Rican educational system is very traditional and lacks resources.
Classes are boring and uninspiring, causing little interest from students in learning.

INSIGHT
When students are bored they draw on their school desks.

SOLUTION
We decided to give the old desk a twist. We created the Rebel school desk, the first desk that is made to be drawn on again and again, allowing students to experiment freely, without fear of being wrong. It’s covered with 3M WhiteBoard Film, a material that transforms regular surfaces into whiteboard surfaces.

RESULTS
Classes have become more dynamic and interesting.
Students feel free to experiment without fear of being wrong.
Students have used the Rebel school desk for their Spanish classes, Math and Social Studies.
The Rebel School Desk caught the atention on the media, receiving a lot of free exposure and coverage.The Ministry of Education is looking into implementing this idea in more schools across the country.
