This fast-paced camp is for dreamers and innovators.  Our two-week Design Thinking Goes to Market camp develops students' maker and entrepreneurship skills.  Students will go from idea concept to bringing a product to market. 

Design thinking (from the d. school at Stanford University) is a human-centered methodical process to go from idea to market. In addition to learning design thinking, students will meet and hear from regional leaders on topics like:  Innovation, Design, Marketing, Budgeting and more.   Students will learn business planning, project budgeting and branding, launch and marketing skills.  The class will collectively establish an online portfolio and marketplace.   On the last day of camp we will hold a community marketplace, giving students immediate feedback on their product and market process.
