Inside Design Tech High School, a project-based learning school

Design thinking is a proven method of inquiry and exploration, like the scientific method. At this project-based school, students approach projects through the lens of design thinking.

This video is part of our Cool School Models series, which features seven new and emerging school models. Across the country, some standout schools have thrown out the old playbook and created something totally new. Kids tend to love these schools, as do the educators who work there, which makes for creative, innovative learning environments where kids grow and thrive. Check out the other six emerging school models (place-based learning; high-expecations, high-support school; language immersion; Montessori; environmental science; and performance-based learning) to get a glimpse of what’s possible — and then look for schools like these near you.
