Designathon Workshop in primary school to teach about Water issues and entice innovations among pupils

Designathon Workshop in primary school in Zagreb to teach pupils about Water issues and encourage critical and creative thinking. The Designathon method combines Design Thinking and Makers approach.

Designathon Works is a unique design thinking method developed for children to empower and unleash their creativity to design a better world using new technologies.

A designathon is a structured workshop in which children (ages 7 – 12 years) invent, build and present their self-devised solutions to a social or environmental issue around the Sustainable Development Goals. A workshop lasts four to six hours and is facilitated by education professionals. The experience helps children become future ready through learning to design and use technology such as mini-motors and sensors.

The Designathon method combines aspects of Design Thinking and Maker Education, both approaches which are gaining ground in education systems around the world. JCI Zagreb and a certified Designathon Works facilitator are conducting a Designathon workshop in Zagreb primary school. 



Designathon Works je jedinstvena design thinking metoda razvijena za djecu s ciljem osnaživanja njihove kreativnosti kako bi kreairala bolji svijet koristeći nove tehnologije.

Designathon je strukturirana radionica u kojoj djeca (7-12 godina) osmišljavaju, grade i prezentiraju izume za društvene ili okolišne probleme oko UN Ciljeva održivog razvoja. Radionica traje 4-6 sati i vođena je od strane educiranih profesionalaca. Iskustvo pomaže djeci da budu spremni za budućnost kroz učenje dizajniranja i korištenja tehnologije poput mini motora i senzora. 

Designathon metoda kombinira aspekte Design Thinking i Makers Edukacije, oba pristupa koja doživljavaju uzlet u obrazovnim sustavima diljem svijeta. JCI Zagreb i certificirani Designathon Works facilitator provode Designathon radionicu u Zagrebu u osnovnoj školi.
