What can you expect from the workshop?
This will be a unique two day workshop designed specifically for young teens (approx. 13 – 15 yrs old) that aims to be a fun, collaborative learning experience. You will be learning and utilising the same design thinking processes that Google and Meta use to develop their biggest products and services! Both days of the workshop are designed to be interactive, engaging and, most of all, lots of fun! No previous experience or specific skills needed other than an open mind and an occasional burst of imagination.
Will we really design a new board game?
Short answer. Yes! Longer answer. You will learn a variety of creative brainstorming exercises, design processes and rapid prototyping techniques to help you develop and create a working prototype of a new board game that you invent yourself on the day.
