About the program
A project-based program, designed to train students aged 13 – 17 to think outside the box while inquiring about and solving real-life challenges. The program allows them to explore design thinking processes and STEAM tools to find ways for creating usable and innovative products and finding solutions for real-life problems, in 24 hours, spread over 2 weeks.
Throughout this camp, students will attend workshops and engage in specific activities that will guide and shape their way of thinking and provide them with the needed strategies for solving problems in an innovative way. These activities will introduce them to design thinking while challenging & improving their:
- Leadership skills
- Teamwork abilities
- Communication & presentation skills
- Innovative thinking
- Project design
- Latest technology tools and applications
The program will start with an extensive brainstorming session where students and their mentors will list current real-life issues or challenges faced by people in their community, and the final outcome will be an innovative solution to one of these problems identified. It could vary from creating from scratch a product that could enhance the lives of people or reinventing an existing one to serve greater means.
At the end of the second week, the students will pitch their idea to design professionals, mentors and family members and the winning team will receive a team award from Solve24.
