Our DX Teens workshops and courses series encourage students to become creative problem-solvers and design thinkers as they engage in the design process through active observation, real-life applications, and hands-on design activities.

These sessions are led by design educators and are for youth between the ages of 14 and 18 who want to express themselves creatively, develop new skills and/or improve on existing ones.

Students have the opportunity to explore materials in a fun, supportive and inclusive environment alongside like-minded individuals who share their passion for design
