Invention & Design

Solve real-world problems through invention and design 

"A brilliant and much-needed concept for young children to explore their creative genius!

I just wish this was part of school life for all children."

Creativity 

What to Expect

Children learn about the stages of the design thinking process used by designers and creators all over the world. We identify problems and solutions to design innovative products and inventions.

 

Children create prototypes of their inventions and in some workshops come up with accompanying branding to mimic the stages of a real life product launch.

Children leave this workshop buzzing with excitement about what they've created.
