In this Design Thinking workshop, participants will explore this creative way of thinking through a hands-on approach. Design thinking is a form of creative and critical action. In order to find the best response to a problem designers go through a series of steps, questioning, brainstorming, researching, prototyping, and refining. This process is a little different than the typical problem-solving process because it is not linear and it encourages trial and error.
