In this program, students will explore solutions to challenges surrounding climate change, sustainability, architecture, engineering, and other United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Following a tactile brainstorming exercise that focuses on generating ideas and prototyping, they will engage in a series of scientific investigations, followed by a presentation of their creations to the group. This playful educational session has been specifically designed to develop students’ critical thinking and communications skills. Workshop tasks encourage them to be collaborative, resilient and goal oriented—while also testing their innovation and creativity.
