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.
Taught by local design professionals and located with access to site tours and state-of-the-art classrooms, each camp will introduce students to multiple design professions, develop leadership skills, and empower students to make a positive impact on Winston-Salem’s community.
