If you're not currently teaching, what are you focused on?:
I'm a high school senior
Hi! I'm a 17-year-old from Davis, California. I started Preflight, a program that brings professionals into high school classrooms to host challenges about their work. Check out the website at preflightchallenges.com! When I'm not doing homework, you'll find me playing ultimate Frisbee, working out, designing a graphic with Photoshop, listening to a Freakenomics podcast, thinking deeply, cooking an omelette or reading Fast Company articles. I go to a project-based high school and enjoy English and physics best. I'd love to connect! Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Niranjan, I love how you have made design thinking more accessible for younger kids! I think it is really important for kids to have the space to create new things and solve problems even if they don't really have a way to put it into a "design thinking" framework.
I really like the idea of the awards for crazy ideas and highest # of ideas- creative way to encourage effective brainstorming!
How are things going now? What are your next steps? Will it continue or expand this fall?
