Design Week 2024: Design Sprint Pedagogy

Teacher professional learning

$30 Museum Teachers

STEM Design Sprints are workshops where students experience the entire design process from start to finish in the space of one day.

The Scienceworks education team has been producing human-centred STEM Design Sprints for students and teachers since 2018. Our design problems have ranged from building more inclusive communities to designing safe moon habitation, and many things between. Come for an after-school session and learn from our experience: our mistakes, our successes, and what technology tools work well.
