At NORY Summer Camp, we will introduce and infuse the design thinking process. The design thinking process empowers children to think like problem solvers, helping prepare students for real-world challenges. Our project-based program helps children nurture an improvement in higher-order thinking skills, such as critical thinking and creativity, in an open and encouraging environment.
Throughout the summer, children will be presented with a series of problems, brainstorm, and ideate on their ideas, and explore fundamental prototyping concepts. We will guide children throughout the process, while at the same time allowing them the freedom to work collaboratively and the encouragement to share their ideas.
At the end of each week, children will take an idea from concept to execution and learn that there are multiple ways to approach the same problem. Children especially work to develop the skills of empathy, problem-solving, presentation, and prototype designing. Continuous work and exposure to Design Thinking allow for the refinement of these critical soft skills.
In an ever-changing and fast-paced world where we become more globally connected each day, it will be a necessity for the coming generation to be proficient in these generative, collaborative, and empathic skills.
