Challenges for Building Design Thinking and Problem-Solving Skills

Students, teachers, and mentors come together to design solutions for real-world challenges at DiscoverDesign, an online platform supported by the Chicago Architecture Center. On the platform, students can practice the design process, demonstrate their design skills, develop a portfolio of work, earn badges, and get feedback. They can work on projects in their classroom or on their own. Insight from DiscoverDesign’s network of peers, teachers, and design professionals helps to motivate students to practice design thinking. Teachers can use and remix design challenges to build 21st century skills and teach design thinking and problem-solving skills through rigorous and relevant project-based learning. DiscoverDesign is ideal for use in career and technical education programs, as well as in STEM, arts, and humanities courses. Students can get started by checking out the Design Challenges.
