Middle and High School Student Symposium
SOLD OUT! Student Problem Solvers: Design Thinking Challenge
Open to students in grades 5 to 8
Wednesday, March 6, 2019
Applications for this program are closed. Engage your students in a design thinking challenge. Inspired by the exhibition Modern by Design: Chicago Streamlines America, students will consider how design
can improve daily life, identify a challenge, and then design a product or solution. This in-depth collaboration includes bus funding for a field trip to see the exhibition; funds for classroom materials; and a culminating student symposium on March 6, 2019. During the symposium, students will share their designs, be inspired by one another, meet professional designers, and have their work critiqued and recognized.
