Kids Design Academy

Designing for better togetherness

Idean has had the pleasure of hosting several Kids Design Academies from Palo Alto to Helsinki. In these one-day camps, kids have unleashed their imagination and learned as they built.  The day focused on hands-on activities, empathy and collaboration.

Our hope is to inspire an appreciation for others and a love for learning life skills that apply to everything, such as:

  • Listening and empathy 
  • Nurturing creative confidence 
  • Appreciating and building on peers' ideas 
  • Build and build again

On the drive home, I cracked my dad up with all the ways we thought
of getting a cat off the roof — alive.

I didn’t know there are other kids that are also idea boxes and never run
out of ideas.
