The Design Learning Challenge

An interactive design workshop where students and designers work together to create solutions.

About these activities:

Work with real designers to find solutions for sustainability in this free two-hour interactive design workshop. Explore how a professional designer approaches problems, designs solutions, and find out what a career in design might look like. It’s time to unlock your creative potential—the world needs your ideas!

This workshop was developed by designExplorr, an organization devoted to helping youth find their way to creative careers.

Jacinda Walker, facilitator, and owner of designExplorr, will help you design and create something from your own imagination while working with professional designers.

Don’t miss this chance to create solutions the way real designers do!
