about the program about the program

Future Thinkers   aims to build creative and innovative problem-solving skills through the process of design thinking, a human-centred approach to innovation increasingly used by organisations to transform challenges into opportunities.

Research on the future of work indicates that problem-solving, critical thinking and judgement skills are key transferrable enterprise skills for the Australian workforce to remain competitive and thrive in a rapidly changing global economy.

This design thinking program involves small groups of students working with mentors in teams to design solutions to a problem using design-thinking methodology. Students present their solution to the challenge at the end of the program. Mentors wishing to participate do not require prior knowledge of design thinking.
