October 6 is the Day of Design - Day of Design is the first national movement created to teach kids how to use Design Thinking to solve STEM-oriented problems that face the new wave of 21st Century manufacturers. STEMconnector’s Day of DesignTM team is assembling industry and education leaders from around the country to create “challenges” that will inspire teachers and their students to apply teamwork and Design Thinking to create compelling and unique solutions. Teams will then create videos of their approach and their solution, which will earn them great prizes and become contributors to the greatest online repository of “Design Thinking-inspired” solutions in the world! This is a great way for teachers to incorporate PBL into their classrooms!
STEMconnector®, a national consortium of companies, associations, government entities, and academic institutions focused on advancing STEM education, today announced a partnership with digital credential pioneer, Credly, that will bring digital badges to K-12 and collegiate students who complete challenges for the Day of Design.
