Kidovation is running a Schools Programme throughout 2020. We’re looking to work with schools and Accenture Interactive to deliver the Kidovation experience to students from a range of age groups, abilities and backgrounds.
The Schools Programme is a free, day-long design thinking and innovation hackathon at your school, with the aim of providing a fun, educational and career-enriching experience for students in their day-to-day environment.
Following on from this, we are looking to set-up a long term partnership with schools, where we’ll work closely with you to identify and run a range of further workshops, careers events and work experience pathways to benefit your students.
WHAT WE DO ON THE DAY
TO BEGIN WITH
Every workshop starts with building personas and unpacking problem statements to dive into our user's mindsets and understand the pain points that we are looking to solve.
We run ideation sessions with students to harness their creative thinking and the power of collaboration as we create radical and diverse solutions. To make these tangible, we prototype using a range of digital and physical resources – from Coding to Lean Canvases.
We wrap up with a Dragon's Den style pitch and a feedback session where we look to focus on every student's skills and approach. We aim for every student to leave with confidence in their new problem-solving abilities.
We're always happy to work with you and tailor the best possible experience for your students.
