Learn human-centered design!
Open to students, staff, faculty, community members and friends near and far!
Our 2 hour “crash course” introduces participants to design thinking as a process to solve complex problems. You’ll learn new mindsets and methods through a hands-on activity. We will turn a real problem into an inspiring challenge to be addressed optimistically, creatively, and quickly, getting participants on the road to using design thinking to address problems in their own lives and work.
