Design thinking is a process for creative problem-solving using a human-centered approach that includes:
FRAMING: understanding the current situation from a human-centered and empathetic point of view.
IDEATING: conceptualizing and exploring ideas that might address unmet needs.
EXPERIMENTING: trying out ideas in order to learn more.
Participants will learn how to take their idea from a raw concept to a workable solution in a fast-paced, hands-on workshop.
