Equity-Centered Design Thinking Thursday 2.0

This workshop will take design thinking to the next level by diving deeper into designing through an equity-centered lens. Equity-centered Design Thinking is more than a process, it is a mindset shift. In order to make impactful solutions, we must recognize our own assumptions in order to solve for the end user. This requires humility and asks participants to lean into discomfort.

Unplugged Computer Science and Plugged In Robotics

As you try to implement learning around complex computer science concepts into your school or classroom -- especially with younger audiences -- you can often encounter a barrier that is difficult to overcome.

Students find it hard to follow along, lose interest because of the complexity and eventually throw in the towel because it’s “too hard”.

We get it! Instead of continuing to throw pizza at the wall, how about trying something different with us? This event is geared to support educators in taking the complexity out of learning computer science at a young age, while making it fun and engaging.
