Teams of students in SCPKU 2016 participate in a 4 week project to apply design thinking to identify and solve a global grand challenge. Each team is comprised of an interdisciplinary group of upperclassmen and graduate students from Stanford, Tsinghua, and Peking University with strengths in design, development, art, and international experience. The teams are tasked with deliverables throughout the course to move them towards discovering needs and implementing solutions.
