PROJECT DESIGN SPACE
Project Design Space provides a unique opportunity for high school students to gain real-world experience in the field of design. Project Design Space sets itself apart from other innovation clubs by offering student teams the rare opportunity to work on real design projects for actual clients. Our collaborators (“clients”) for this year’s design project challenges are adidas, IBM and Alserkal Avenue. We are also collaborating with Expo 2020 Dubai.
Participating schools will select one to two teacher sponsors that will be invited to a workshop where they will receive all program materials and learn tools for teaching students how to think and work like designers. The teacher sponsors will then work with student teams during after-school meetings to coach them as they design solutions for their clients. Schools will submit their solutions to DIDI by 8 February 2018.
