Steve Jobs said “The people that really create the things that change this industry are both the thinker and doer in one person.”
A multi-activity hands-on program for your tween (9-12years old) to carry out the design process, and make their own designed prototype.
Set them the Design Challenge with an everyday object; the young designers will learn about empathy, problem-solving, collaboration and experimentation through highly active games and stimulating exercises.
Fun & playful experiences both indoor and outdoor; it’s the best way to learn.
Cost includes lunch & snacks, a T-shirt and all materials. Green Dots is housed at one of the beautiful black & white bungalows.
Five educational benefits:
The children learn how to
- understand, adopt and apply the design process: how to empathize with and understand the user/stakeholder, how to frame the design challenge, how to generate ideas, how to prototype and test solutions, how to iterate in between the phases.
- develop creative thinking skills of problem solving, collaboration, risk-taking, critical thinking, experimentation, making creative connections and challenging assumptions
- develop life skills, such as empathy, communication, self esteem, team work, dealing with change
- to apply their learning to everyday situations
- be resourceful and resilient.
