Design Thinking

The Design Thinking Model is a way of presenting STEAM intruction.  Scholars are presented with an idea that guides them to Empathize through observation and surveying.  Then they identify or Define a problem to Ideate a possible solution.  Scholars Create a prototype in which they Test, ultimately making observations for improvements to their model. 


During the summer, teachers and students learned the process throughpartnership and mentoring from 4H, TATA Consultancy, and SMU.  The professional development as well as summer enrichment camp provided the teachers with the tools necessary to facilitate STEAM design thinking process.
