Everyone is talking about Design Thinking, but what’s it all about? Join us for a Design Thinking sprint (no experience necessary!) that will show you how designers think and familiarize you with the basics of the Design Thinking process.

We’ll start with an overview of the Design Thinking process. Then we’ll try it out!  We’ll work together to address a design challenge by building empathy, brainstorming, working collaboratively on teams, prototyping solutions, and iterating to improve them. By the end of the session, you’ll know how Design Thinking works and be able to start using the process on your own.

This event costs $60 for non-members and $50 for MODA members. 

Appropriate for ages 14+. Please reach out to the facilitator, Jess Lewis if you have questions or accessibility needs.
