Design Thinking is a mindset and methodology that centers around problem solving. Using Design Thinking in education creates curriculum that focuses on students going through a process to inquire, brainstorm, and create solutions to real interdisciplinary problems.

The groups were to focus on one of the following areas:
> Curriculum
> Learning Spaces
> Community (groups did not report their findings)
