For Teachers

Use DiscoverDesign.org to guide students to solve problems using design thinking and 21st Century learning skills. Assign existing challenges to students or create new ones. At each step of the design process students post original photos, research, drawings, models or video artifacts. The website serves as a “town square” where students can be inspired, learn from each other’s work and get feedback from each other and design professionals along the way. DiscoverDesign.org is ideal for use in Career and Technical Education classes, and Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) courses. Art and humanities teachers also find DiscoverDesign.org to be rigorous and relevant for cross-disciplinary and project-based learning.
