Description

By designing inventions and solving problems the imaginary City X will learn to thrive. Challenges that face this new city include energy, the environment, transportation, security, food, safety, and health. By using design thinking, systems thinking and other problem-solving activities the future of City X will be successful. In each chapter kids design a solution for its citizens who represent a diversity of culture, age, gender, background, and ability. While working through these exercises readers will learn about real-world innovators and technologies that are helping to shape the real world.

Design thinking—creative problem solving—will be crucial to resolving the global challenges in business, politics, and the environment facing the next generation. Each book in the Design Genius Jr. series teaches kids this important skill through fun, hands-on projects in a single area of design that challenge them to identify problems, explore possibilities, test ideas, and then come up with original solutions.
