Design Lab

The Design Lab provides an opportunity to collaborate on bold ideas that make a difference in the lives of students. Rooted in community-driven design and a creative mindset, we collectively transform ideas into solutions. The lab serves as a new model for the way we impact learning.

Students, educators, families, and community members want to create solutions to existing challenges. The Design Lab validates their insights and provides a means to experiment with transformative design. It enables shared power, highlights everyone as an innovator, and creates a model for on-going innovation.

It also capitalizes on experiences, expertise, and passions by changing the way problems are identified and addressed. This iterative process involves gathering information about educational issues, developing possibilities, and evolving them into viable solutions. These potential solutions are tried in various classrooms, Out-of-School Time programs, and in the community.

The Design Lab reframes the way we look at educational problems. It encourages us to see problems as opportunities and to collectively find solutions together. It promotes partnerships between schools and their communities and represents a powerful system for local, sustainable innovation.

Design Lab Mission:

  • Engage students, educators, families and community members in co-design
  • Explore and create impactful design solutions
  • Build partnerships and a culture of creativity and courage
