WHAT?

Design Challenges begin with a system problem and end with a prototype of a viable solution to that problem. Students lead the process and culminate with "pitch-day" an opportunity to bring in community members to support student learning. Breaker PD will teach you how to run design challenges within your classroom. 

WHY?

Design Challenges allow students to hone their skills as creative problem solvers and add immediacy and relevancy to coursework. Cover your important content areas while your students practice skills needed for success in the new economy.
