Rising high school 9–12th graders are invited to collaborate with the Winston-Salem community and local professionals in designing for social change through two week-long summer camps.

Join Lauren and Elise for design thinking summer camp experiences that explore firsthand how design-based solutions can address real world problems. During these one-week day camps, students will use the design process to engage with local organizations in proposing solutions to a systemic challenge.
