Bright Spark membership offers programs to students 4th-grade through college to build design skills such as empathy, problem solving, prototyping and experimenting to innovate new solutions through Design Thinking.
Teachers annually report their students grow in critical thinking, problem-solving and collaboration skills—all while having fun. Students also grow in empathy. By continually practicing design thinking, students begin to more frequently see the world through the eyes of others.
