MAKE & Design Thinking
New Makerspaces and Tinkering Studios are popping up in schools, libraries and museums across the country. Are you excited about the possibilities but daunted by starting from scratch?
Join our resident Makers at the Education Studio for a week of building and planning projects that encourage creative thought and exploration.
Projects will focus on low-tech, low-cost materials that give emphasis to the Whys of design thinking instead of the Hows.
Capacity: 25 participants
Location: Discovery Place Education Studio
Schools will be invoiced for workshop fees. Payment is due by the end of the workshop.
Lunch will be provided. Parking at the Discovery Place Science parking deck will be validated.
