Design Thinking & Making Workshop

Partnering with a 5th Grade teacher in Bronx to deliver a introductory workshop on the design process

Over two days, thirty 5th graders went through a condensed design process from defining the problem, researching to solutioning and presenting it. The facilitation included lectures, movies, examples, class discussions and team discussions. Apart from having fun brainstorming and making, they learnt to work with their non-bestfriend classmates, appreciate the intricate web of decision making that goes into designing simple everyday products, and deal with moments of not knowing everything(ambiguity).
