How the Program Works AR

 

Over the course of 8 months, participating students, coached by their teacher sponsor, will discover and work on finding solutions based on a four-step design process: analysis, ideation, prototype creation, and then presentation and pitching.
 

The final steps of the process are the boot camp and final event, where the selected teams will pitch their prototyped solutions to a jury of clients, other professionals, DIDI professors, and experts.
 

To date, students have completed design challenges for international and regional organizations such as adidas, Alserkal Avenue, Dettol, Dubai Holding, Emirates Marine Environmental Group, Emirates Nature-WWF, LEGO, Nike, Splash, and more.

    After attending an orientation session in November, teachers kick off the program with their students. Students form teams and select a challenge to solve. Students have five months to work on their projects before submitting their solutions. The top eight teams from each challenge will be invited to a boot camp, where they will receive constructive feedback on their solutions from the DIDI Project Design Space team. These teams will then have one month to refine their solutions before pitching to a panel of judges at the finals' event.
