We've created learning resources for children
Based on the d.school Design Thinking process, our worksheets and workbooks guide children through a practical, hands-on design process.
We've grown a network of design mentors
Over 50 designers and UX experts have signed up as mentors, who volunteer to help run Design Club workshops.
We've run Design Thinking workshops for children
We've piloted an after school club, and partnered with CoderDojo and the Institute of Imagination to run workshop to over 200 children.
We've delivered mentor training (overseas)
Partnering with the British Council, we delivered a four-day Design Thinking training programme to 20 mentors from across the Balkans.
