Atlanta Museum Teaches Kids Design Thinking At Summer Camp
CampMODA offers 24 week-long sessions where kids and teens learn how to apply design thinking to various STEAM fields
Being creative takes work, and so does design thinking. Talent helps, but it’s only half the battle when it comes to creating inspired work. That’s why The Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) has opened up a summer camp to help kids ages 0-17 develop their “design thinking” skills from an early age. “We believe that that kids can change the world. They see through unique and fresh eyes, they love wacky ideas and they are brave enough to think that anything is possible,” said the museum’s director Laura Flusche in a blog post.
The camp offers 24 week-long sessions covering topics such as “LEGO Robotics for Aspiring Filmmakers,” “Robotics: Tinkering with Circuits and Robots,” “Architectural Design with Minecraft,” “Digital Building Blocks: Adventures in Blockly” and more. CampMODA teaches kids to use design thinking as it applies to various STEAM fields (science, technology, engineering, art/design and math) to solve problems and address challenges.
