Can kids use design thinking to improve their own education? 

With your help… YES (See below for how you can help)

Imagine an event where 5 students win $1,000 to implement their idea to improve the education at their school.

We call it the *Reframe $1,000 School Hack Challenge*


  • WHY > Kids need agency over their own education
  • WHAT > Design thinking applied to educational improvement.  
  • HOW > Hack-a-thon for kids, by kids
  • WHO > Students ages 13 - 18
  • WHEN > Sat Mar 11, 8AM to 8PM
  • WHERE > Location TBD
  • HOW MUCH > FREE with FOOD/


  1. Students will arrive at 8AM to develop ideas and connect into groups about the ideas that inspire them. 
  2. Students will be mentored by maker experts to prototype their idea.
  3. Students will then test their idea with real teachers.  
  4. The groups will continuously improve and test their idea.
  5. They will then develop a presentation with their mentors and pitch to a group of expert judges.

* Students and Parents /The More the Merrier/
