What’s In A TinkingTechy Dare

Design Thinking

Design Thinking is the process many inventors and innovators use to figure out how to go from idea to launch. Whether you’re planning to create a product, digital program or hands-on game. It’s important to consider several ideas, sketch how these might work, look and feel and eventually tinker with a live version of your idea.

Every TinkingTechy Dare is centered around the Design Thinking process. To inspire girls to think of the possibilities beyond traditional crafts, art projects or coding lessons.

Time-Limits

In true Start-Up fashion TinkingTechy’s ‘Dares’ are modeled after Hackathons. Typically, designers, programmers and engineers gather to bring to life creative ideas or solve problems collaboratively. Hackathons usually happen over the course of a few days or a weekend to promote a highly creative and “get it launched” energy.
