Designing Solutions to Global Grand Challenges: China
Summer 2016
Design Brief

SCPKU 2016 focuses on bringing design thinking, processes, and tools to China. Students in the course will take on the challenge and apply this methodology to various problems in health, environment, and education in China.


To enhance the needfinding process, teams partnered with organizations introduced by our colleagues at Peking University and Tsinghua University.


Prototyping turns ideas into tangible forms that can be included or excluded in the next design iteration. Students in our course focus on improving their hi-fidelity protypes running on the target platform.
