What is design thinking?
Design thinking is a process for creative problem solving.
Design thinking has a human-centered core. It encourages students to focus on the people/reasons they’re creating for, which leads to better products, services, and internal processes.
We will be using the Launch Cycle framework to support the design thinking process. The Launch Cycle has one extra step, presenting project/solution/idea to others. Students, throughout the year, will participate in design thinking exercises, participate in maker challenges, and design/create items with a purpose.
