Join Illinois MakerLab for this innovative common core aligned camp where teams of students help settle humans on a new alien planet. Humans have staked out an area for their first city, City X. However, they need inventions that solve challenges relating to health, safety, communication, transportation, and more. These inventions are to be created by a vast team of young designers all around Earth. It’s up to the City X designers – teams of students – to solve the real-world problems of 32 characters living in City X. During the camp, students use the Stanford d.school design process along with 3D modeling and printing technologies to invent, prototype, and test their solutions.
Please visit the Design Thinking - City X Camp webpage for more details.
