Design-a-Thon School is a platform and learning community that helps children and teachers become "Future Proof" by teaching them to design and to make through creative and critical thinking and with the new technology.
It combines learning and making with the real world issues which encourages children making the world a better place.
Design-a-Thon School online platform offers a wide variety of teaching materials for making big (large) and small(er) projects at school or at location.
We call them Designa-Thons.
Children and teachers can choose to do whole Design-a-Thon as prescribed or pick and choose tools and themes to create their own. Depending on the time available and what you want to learn. You can create your own learning experiences.
