At Nueva, we believe that Design Thinking is not simply a subject for students to learn or a process to follow. Rather, it is a mindset for students to cultivate, a way to approach challenges in one's life and beyond, as well as a lens through which to view our world. In this overview, Innovation Lab (I-Lab) director Angi Chau and members of the I-Lab team will talk about the journey that Nueva embarked on 13 years ago as it began to develop a holistic Design Thinking program for our school. We will show how Design Thinking permeates our school culture, from the student experience to more behind-the-scenes work such as designing our school's schedule. We will also highlight more specifically the work we do in the I-Lab, where we built upon the foundation of Design Thinking by adding on the lenses of engineering and computer science. This presentation would be a wonderful way to begin your own journey through Design Thinking, both at this conference and beyond, and we think you will find something relevant to bring back to your own practice, whether you are new to Design Thinking or not!
