Introduction to Design Thinking: Session 1



Jul 29 – Aug 01


An intensive four-day online summer course for high school students based on Thayer's ENGS 12: Design Thinking class.

Design thinking is a multidisciplinary creative problem-solving methodology used by individuals and teams to create world-changing products and services and to tackle the most complex human-centered challenges of our time.

This course will be a hands-on introduction to design thinking comprised entirely of interactive activities—some during class time, in our Zoom classroom and breakout rooms; others for homework as you work on individual exercises or collaborate with teammates around the globe. You will end up equipped with the skills and confidence to creatively tackle complicated problems in the real world.

  • Session 1: July 29–August 1
  • Session 2: August 5–8
  • Daily 9:00am–12:00pm ET
  • Eligibility: High school rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors
  • Cost: $750
