Design Thinking Labs open to students

The Beavercreek City School District opened its Design Thinking Labs (D-Labs) to students. Recently completed, these labs were built to provide students with an investigative approach to learning.

Located at Beavercreek High School, Ferguson Hall, Coy Middle School, and Ankeney Middle School, the D-Labs are designed to foster creative thinking that helps students solve real-world problems.

Design Thinking is a process for assessing and defining a problem then applying relevant knowledge to produce a range of solutions. Students create, test, and refine prototypes in an effort to identify innovative solutions to the problem. This hands-on, learn-by-doing methodology will be integrated into existing courses and specialized elective courses for students in grades 8 through 12.
