Educating curious, young minds about the power of design is our mission. With an ever changing future it is crucial, more than ever, that we educate our young about how to create a better world with design principles.
Through Design Emergency and exhibition resources, we have developed a comprehensive learning experience that any teacher, learning facilitator or student can incorporate into their curriculum. Syllabus ideas include classroom activities, workshops, video resources, education kits, audio stories, and more.
