“To think like a designer requires dreaming up wild ideas,taking time to tinker and test, and being willing to fail early and often."
Design isn’t just about creation; it’s about harnessing creativity to solve real world problems and improve people's lives- through the use of innovation. Our course takes students on an exciting journey of solving real world problems through hands-on exploration & product development. To think like a designer requires dreaming up wild ideas, taking time to tinker and test, and being willing to fail early and often.
The project-based curriculum aligns with prompts based on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals -- a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. In collaboration with,Citizen Cyber Lab,Open Seventeen, Micro:bit - do your :bit, and other similar initiatives, we incorporate their prompts to mentor students through the design process to reach desired outcomes.
Invention, however, requires more than just curiosity and creativity – it requires the KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS to carry a design to fruition. TechLabs teachers help students gain the knowledge to facilitate THEIR ideas, THEIR invention, and THEIR vision and to show them how to implement it with new technologies.
This course is offered in two levels to allow students of a wide variety of age and skill levels to participate and learn how to use technology to innovate for a better future!
