We'll be doing a hands-on workshop in Design Thinking, where we'll roll up our sleeves and tackle some design problem-solving in groups. 

What's Design Thinking, you ask? 

Design Thinking is a collaborative, human-centered approach to solving a wide range of complex problems. This hands-on workshop will rapidly go through each stage of the design thinking process: understanding user's needs, framing the problem for creative solutions, ideating, prototyping, and testing.
