This is the second year Cooper-Hewitt's Design Educators are going into New York City schools and leading free design workshops! Target Design K-12: Design in the Classroom web site has a revised Teacher Resource Packet that includes all the valuable feedback given by teachers who participated last year. Registration is now available on-line for the 2012-2013 school year.
Target Design K-12 Design in the Classroom is a single 45-minute visit to your classroom. All K-12 teachers in NYC are eligible. Whether you teach social studies or math or even language arts, our hands-on exercises in teamwork and brainstorming will equip your students with new tools to take on challenges in any subject. The workshop focuses on introducing how design is part of the student’s everyday life. In teams, students will solve a design challenge by creating a simple prototype. All workshop materials are provided.
