Seven hours in, Thinkers are well into the design thinking process, having completed the empathy stage, working into the define stage.
Thinkers spent a couple hours observing and engaging with local, regional and national experts in areas applicable to learning. From there, the students have moved into the define stage.
In the define stage, Thinkers will unpack and synthesize their empathy findings to scope a need or challenge to create a "How might we?" statement.
They will define their problem and ideate on a solution through the end of the evening before opening up with prototyping their solutions Friday morning.
