Design Day is an exciting one-day program that brings together middle schoolers, local companies, and community members to engage in a compelling design thinking experience. STC brings together students from our local network of schools to tackle a real-world challenge presented to them by community leaders. To create a prototype of their solution, students collaborate in teams with peers from a variety of schools, supported by corporate and community volunteers. Students’ Design Day experience culminates in a formal pitch of their design to a panel of judges. The day typically concludes with an awards ceremony and celebration reception.
