C4DLab is set to undertake a flagship design thinking seminar for children aged 6 to 10 years. The design thinking seminar is set to launch the young innovators into the basics of design thinking and its principles while solving a defined problem in the context of the ‘April 2019 Design Thinking Challenge’ The programme is dubbed ‘Making Innovators’ Kids Edition
The young innovators are set to solve real life challenges experienced by their peers and fellow children who are disadvantaged because of poor backgrounds. The innovators will be working in the context of the April 2019 Design Thinking Challenge of “building a toy car that moves as far as possible without batteries or being pushed”
The children will undergo a 3 day seminar that will involve learning how to be empathetic with the user, defining a problem, ideating, prototyping and testing. As part of the learning process, the children will be guided by mentors throughout their 3 days experience. They will also have fun sessions and energizers in between to help them recollect and brainstorm.
Let’s see how this goes.
