Design in the Classroom Supports the Common Core Standards


Two years ago, the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum closed for renovations and the opportunity opened up to explore a school-based program: Design in the Classroom.  This free 45-minute, single visit workshop introduces K-12 students to design thinking.  In short, design thinking is a term describing the way designers critically assess the "things" all around us.
