Better By Design
An initiative by CHIREC alums, Better by Design is a course that walks students from Grades 5 to 9 through Stanford’s Design Thinking methodology, to enable them to come up with innovative ideas to solve problems and bring these ideas to life in a state of the art innovation lab.
This is a unique activity and does not fall under the regular club format. Students are given a situation with a problem. Finding and creating solutions from every day or learned knowledge, applying innovative and creative skills will release in them the scientist and inventor. Being able to “create” solutions will be their challenge and learning experience.
