Design the Future
Design the Future is a week-long, fully immersive design thinking summer program for rising 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders in which students work to solve some of the biggest challenges facing our world today.
During this intensive program, created by DC Design and developed in collaboration with the Institute of Design at Stanford (the d.school) and K12 Lab Network, students work to design solutions to real problems faced by individuals with physical disabilities. Through hands-on experiences, students learn to employ the design thinking process by working to address real challenges using the steps of Empathy, Definition, Ideation, Prototyping, and Testing.
Programs in 2018 will be held at Stanford University in collaboration with the Institute of design at Stanford and at the University of California, Berkeley in collaboration with the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation.
Stanford: June 18 - 24 | Berkeley: June 25 - July 1
