Every Child Should Know About Design


I wish all children in the United States could know about design and have some experience of it before they reach high school age, and that design could be an option in the curriculum during the high school years, so that they could be aware of the value of design thinking in solving problems, or build a portfolio to apply for a design program at University level if they want.
