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.
