Design thinking school incursion programs

We love design thinking, your students will too when they try our school incursion programs. Our one-day Design thinking for social change incursion builds young change makers who learn the processes of design thinking, are empowered to take a social issue they are passionate about forward from ideas to action and test their prototypes in the real world. Our Design challenges see students engage with real-world stakeholders to deeply understand a problem, learn design thinking practices and apply them to prototype an issue in school or the community.
