Students will learn and practice the process of Design Thinking then apply their learning to solve authentic, relevant problems. Design Thinking is a problem-based learning framework that guides and encourages creative and unconventional thinking for solving the problems of today and tomorrow.
Our program will provide students the opportunity to further develop:
- Academic and life skills
- Authentic problem solving
- Increased self-esteem and confidence
- A framework for problem solving
Providing students with a place and opportunity to use their skills to solve authentic problems will enhance personal confidence and self-esteem. Design Thinking will provide students with life-long skills, which can be applied in academics and are relevant in life. Design Thinking is organic and authentic, with ideas generated by the students.
