Design thinking is a creative, problem-solving framework used by industrial designers and successfully applied to almost anything involving humans: civic policies, healthcare, business, architecture, computer science, management, etc.
In this 2- day workshop, students collaborate on a specific challenge and apply the design process of Learn, Define, Ideate, and Test.  This workshop is for anyone wanting a structured approach to solving problems and ways to develop creative solutions that connect to the human experience.
