Go the Distance for Good
Start with Empathy, Design for Real People
A Pretty Brainy Design-A-Thon is a weekend innovation marathon in service to real-world dilemmas. Participants are given problem statements, mentoring, materials, space to design, expert insight, and 24 to 36 hours to innovate. The gains? Learning how to innovate, collaborate, communicate, and create tech, as well as jumping into a fabulous community of women and girls in STEAM studies and careers.
Our next event: MISSion Innovation, high school and college students innovating for sustainable cities and communities, locally and globally. Happening April 14-15, 2018, at Colorado State University.
Sign up today. Space is limited (seriously). You’ll step into the shoes of problem-solver and innovator empowered with how-to’s and insight relevant to the world today.
