Design in the Classroom


Cooper Hewitt Museum is definitely on my list of favorite museums to visit! I think its even more amazing what they are doing for all the students in America. It’s interesting to see how art continues to change and only further advance with the youth of our generation. Cooper Hewitt has developed a design program that will be offered to students in America. Their program is designed to have children think like designers in solving design solutions with a creative process. What’s really cool about the program is their design challenge kit. The design kit is a 45 minute workshop that gives children the opportunity to come up with design solutions with commonly used materials for a prototype. The program encourages confidence in the young designers!

The program has received support from many including Ellen Degeneres who believe in their mission to providing young students the process of developing thoughtful design solutions.
