About the event
Calling all bold girls and allies from 7th to 12th grade who are passionate about becoming changemakers!
- Are there things that make you mad, sad or frustrated and you wish you can change it?
- Do you have an idea that you feel passionate about but don't know where to start or how to make it happen?
- Are you curious and want to learn how to design innovative solutions that can drive impact?
Design thinking is a mindset used to design for change. During this session, you'll be working with like-minded peers guided by an experienced professional at your table, to learn how to center your solution on the human experience, ideate playfully and creatively, and collaborate with others to develop a prototype of an initial solution. We'll share tools and approaches to apply these skills to create positive impact, and provide real-time feedback and coaching. Particularly for those who are planning to join our Changemaker Challenge, this will be a perfect opportunity to bring your team or form a team during the session to start designing your solution and receiving coaching from professional experts. You will learn how to take the first step to design and develop your solution that you can later present and pitch to experts who can help you bring your solutions to life.
