With only a few months separating us from the summer, we will soon be sharing summer professional development opportunities for educators from across the network. In case you know students and families who are already thinking about summer, as a teaser we are sharing the first announcement of Design the Future 2018, a week-long design intensive for high school students. 

If you or your school have a learning experience you'd like us to share, please let us know by emailing

Design the Future, Stanford, CA

Design the Future is a week long, fully immersive design thinking summer program for rising 9th 10th, 11th and 12th graders in which students work to design solutions to real problems faced by individuals with physical disabilities. At the end of the one week program, each student group will present its final design and high resolution prototype during a media attended presentation. Students should expect to walk away from the course with an understanding of how they might tangibly improve the world around them having just contributed directly to the improvement of the lives of others. Design the Future runs June 18-24. Apply here.
