Welcome to the Atlanta K12 Design Challenge, a partnership between Atlanta area independent schools, Fulton County Schools, and the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford University (the "d.school"). Since January 2014, teams of educators from 11 schools (with some changes in the school mix along the way) have been building capacity for design thinking as a process for school innovation; launching pathways to possibly solving some complex issues; developing the institutional toolkit for change; and, valuing the opportunity to come together as schools in a premier professional development model.
The Atlanta K12 Design Challenge
is made possible by the generous support, leadership and encouragement of the R. Howard Dobbs, Jr. Foundation, The Woodward Fund, , The Westminster Schools, The Lovett School, and Fulton County Schools. Participating schools for the 2015-2016 school year include: The Lovett School, The Westminster Schools, Woodward Academy, Trinity School, Atlanta International School, Mountain Park Elementary School.
