Why teach design?
Design is a weekly specialist class for grades 2-5 students. Design helps prepare students for a volatile, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous future. The design cycle teaches students to engage with problems, needs, or wants; develop a plan of action; create a prototype or product; evaluate what they make, and then seek to improve upon it.
Throughout the design cycle students develop their thinking, self-management, social, research, and communication skills. You can find out more about each stage of the process in the boxes below.
