Design the Future is an award winning, fully immersive design thinking summer program for rising 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th graders in which students work to solve some of the biggest challenges facing our world today.

During this intensive 6-day program, created by DC Design and developed in collaboration with the Institute of Design at Stanford (the d.school) and K12 Lab, students work to design solutions to real problems faced by individuals with physical disabilities. Through hands-on experiences, students learn to employ the design thinking process by working to address real challenges using the steps of Empathy, Definition, Ideation, Prototyping, and Testing.

In 2019 Design the Future will be held at its founding location, Stanford University, in collaboration with the Institute of Design at Stanford and at great universities across the country including the University of Kansas, Boston University, University of Washington—Madison, Sacred Heart University, and the University of Louisville. Enrollment is open. For more information on each program and pricing, see below.
