If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again!

At the STEAM school, we will use the design process to solve real problems. Check out this great resource from PBS Kids on how to teach kids to use the design process (page 2). The most important aspect of design thinking is that there is no single “correct” solution, rather a series of attempts, redesigns and retests along the bumpy road toward an awesome product. This type of thinking encourages kids to continue trying new approaches until they have a great solution.

When kids use design thinking, it builds their resilience, persistence, diligence and confidence!
