We were so excited to host our Bay Area kickoff at IDEO in Palo Alto with founding partner, Dennis Boyle. Students got to see innovation in action in the home of design thinking.

August 2018, we ran our first teacher training for educators excited about bringing impactful making and real-world problem solving into their classrooms (and museums!). Working on solving problems for real people can be a messy process, so we broke it down into tools and strategies to help students achieve incredible and impactful results.
