Design Thinking w/ Open IDEO - Public Education in Detroit

What would happen if you filled a room with a diverse group of smart Detroiters for a brainstorming session about public education in Detroit?

H2SAS is co-hosting it's next event with Open IDEO Detroit. This will be an ideation/brainstorming/problem-solving session focused on a specific issue relevant to Detroit.

We will leverage IDEO's Design Thinking methodology to build empathy and gain a deeper understanding of the problem at hand (the specific challenge will be posted closer to the event....but we'll give you a hint - it pertains to Pre-K through 12th grade education right here in the Motor City).

6:00pm: Networking and Food
6:30pm: Members will break out into groups. The groups will be presented with a challenge and the objective/key takeaways of the discussion. Several members of the Open IDEO Detroit team will help facilitate the conversation using IDEO's Design Thinking framework.
7:30-8pm: Wrap-Up and Q&A

Stay tuned for additional details :)
