Are you ready for the challenge?!?!

Now that November is here, it is time for the challenges to really begin! Design Challenges that is! For our first Design Challenge, 4th grade Design Thinkers will be completing the challenge: Love Detroit. They will be faced with the task of helping their user be exposed to and take advantage of all of Detroit's wonderful attractions and resources. We are looking forward to getting our wheels turning and thinking outside of the box!
