What is Design Thinking, and why should it be instilled in Youths?

To find solutions to the increasingly complex problems of tomorrow, it is imperative that we expose the landscapers of the future – youths – to powerful problem-solving toolkits. One such toolkit is Design Thinking, a methodology that has already helped hundreds of businesses innovate.

In Design Thinking, youths will be pushed to learn through understanding and thinking over memorisation; an essential skill for tackling the ever-changing world.
“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” – MargaretMead

We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.

- Albert Einstein

WHAT WILL THEY LEARN?

Want to help your child solve problems?
Have them design their own solutions.

Design isn’t just about creation; it’s about solving problems and improving situations through the use of innovation. Our Design Thinking programmes are tailored to stretching your child’s mind, building their creative confidence by allowing them to fail quickly and get back on their feet even faster to conceive innovative ideas.

The trait of rising past failure and experimenting with further ideas to succeed is useful in any field of study or work, and essential for entrepreneurs.
