Project Invent builds high school programs where students design technologies to help real people. In our programs, students have designed everything from a smart wallet to help the blind detect bill denominations to a steering wheel attachment to prevent drowsy driving. Welcoming authentic, community projects into the classroom shows students that they can make a difference. During this session, attendees will get an overview of Project Invent’s theory of change, highlighting student outcomes and examples of student work. Then, attendees will be asked to engage with templates and multimedia to learn how to facilitate human-centered invention in the high school classroom. This will involve a crash course in how to help students engage empathetically with real users, distill big ideas into actionable next steps, and make designing technologies approachable to even those new to making.
