Using Design Thinking to Strengthen School Culture

Our 9th-12th-grade students, the staff, and community members kicked off the 2017-2018 school year in a new way.

Over the course of two days, teams participated in activities to create connections and design a way to strengthen the culture across the school community. The learning experience culminated in pitch event, with teams presenting their creative solutions and business models for implementation. Students’ prototype solutions included a coffee cart that serves a meeting spot for casual conversations and also generates monetary support for after school programs and a mindfulness room to help students center themselves and focus on school.
