BrightLab is a partnership between an interdisciplinary group of students from the California College of the Arts and Brightworks, a progressive school rooted in hands-on, project-based experiential learning. We are designing a mobile education pod that can serve the greater community by bringing Brightworks’ notion of exploratory learning to underserved schools. Our goal is to deliver design thinking and peer collaboration to children who are accustomed to more traditional, linear, and memorization-based classroom models.
We are currently looking for public school partners (primary or middle school) in San Francisco who would be interested in hosting this (free) supplemental hands-on learning experience for their students.
Our design process is based heavily in community collaboration, which we believe will maximize the success of BrightLab by drawing on the expertise of students, teachers, collaborators, parents, and designers. Help out by giving us your thoughts, ideas, and feedback!
