Ready to start solving problems?
At the Youth Design Lab, you’ll spend an entire week tackling design challenges with your peers. You’ll work shoulder-to-shoulder with engineers, data scientists, design researchers, writers, and graphic designers.
You’ll learn how to
- gather inspiration from your community
- brainstorm ideas
- prototype ideas into reality
- gain support for your ideas through storytelling
You can use the prototyping and problem-solving methods you learn in your own communities and throughout your entire career. And IDEO Youth Design Lab looks really good on your resume and college applications.
→ IDEO Youth Design Lab is virtual & FREE
→ Snacks and food is provided - we will issue food delivery service gift cards
But what’s TSEP?
The Social Engineering Project, Inc. ("TSEP") is an Oakland based, 501(c)(3) tax exempt social impact venture with Stanford University designed to address the lack of diversity in the tech industry through STEM pipeline programs for Black and Brown students of color that lead to technical career pathways.
But what’s IDEO?
IDEO is a global design firm committed to making positive impact through design. We work with companies and institutions like Google, Ford, Spotify, and Stanford. We’ve designed all kinds of products and services from the very first Apple mouse to an online pharmacy service that Amazon bought for $1 billion. How do we do it? By using the same process you’ll learn at the Youth Design Lab!
