Life Choices Academy: Human-Centred Design Thinking Bootcamp by Belle and Co.
26-27 June; 3-4 July; 10-11 July 2019
Over the course of 3 weeks, 60 coding students of the Lifechoices Academy were exposed to Design-Thinking methodology, which enabled them to get out of the computer room and onto the streets to find out the needs, desires and challenges faced by ordinary people. Using design thinking principles, teams tackled some of the most intractable problems facing society such as Youth Unemployment, Public Transport, Homelessness and Education.
The intensive journey was designed and facilitated by Belisa Rodrigues of Belle and Co, which culminated in teams presenting their final prototype solution to Life Choices staff and students.
