Our Design Thinking Challenges

By introducing design thinking directly to students, we hope to inspire the next generation of leaders to craft innovative and empathetic solutions to the problems that future generations will face. We invite middle and high school students to learn problem solving skills directly from our team, Princeton professors, and more.

Each of our challenges are centered around a particular innovative theme, and through a day of workshops and ideation, students learn the skills of brainstorming and teamwork. At the end of the challenge, all students learn the value of presenting their ideas, and winners of all ages and experiences are chosen.
