Everyday we ask our students to design and create. Prototypes. Graphics. Videos. Presentations. Solutions. However, supporting those students through that process is often overlooked.

Learn how to support student creativity by introducing them to a design process, inexpensive classroom hacks, and simple tools and materials that will improve their designs.
