Every year schools are awarded an Innovation Award to tackle an equity based challenge.  Look at the Design Challenges page for a list of those schools.  In addition, schools and departments are tackling challenges ranging from building a pre-teacher pathway from high school to credentialing to building technology master plans.  Contact Brian Fox at for more information on current design challenges.

      I teach Probability and Statistics to seniors at George Washington High School. I want to work on integrating design thinking into the process of teaching my course. I have been thinking that the design thinking process can be modeled by the statistical process and therefore would serve to help students creatively help change some aspect of their high school experience through innovation. I am looking for someone with design thinking experience to help me with this project.
