Science and technology have progressed logically for hundreds of years, each innovation building atop former ideas and inventions. In the past half century, there has been a Digital Revolution that launched an Information Age the world had never seen, but this momentum isn't slowing and could expect to continue until the next modern revolution.

So how might we prepare our students to become the next innovators of the modern world? Design Thinking.
Design Thinking is a human-centered, hands-on approach to problem solving that focuses on understanding the user and develops through a process of questioning, ideating, prototyping, and testing. Design Thinking has been adopted by some of the leading innovators in the world such as Apple, Google, Samsung, and GE, and is being taught at many universities including Stanford, Harvard, MIT, and the local JBU.

Design Thinking in the classroom allows learners to solve complex problems collaboratively and push past boundaries to see new possibilities in technology and in themselves.
