A major event held each year at Mount Vernon, fuse16 launched today! We began with a pre-conference workshop centered on Design Thinking 101. Attendees were able to take a lap in design thinking through a flashlab centered on the question How Might We design a better driver’s experience for the morning commute? Later this evening and through Friday afternoon, we will host our Core experience where attendees will work with one of four local non-profits in a real-life design challenge. Lastly, Friday afternoon offers the DEEPr experience where attendees can choose three of several sessions to learn more about applying design thinking in their classroom. More information on fuse can be found on the MVIFI website here. I am honored to serve as a coach once again. Let’s get designing!
