DT4T Event at Stanford University
On October 21st, DT4T Silicon Valley Chapter hosted a Design Thinking workshop at Stanford University in collaboration with Lovenotes. The workshop brought students from around the Bay Area to collaborate with each other and learn the basics to design thinking. Sohayle Sizar, a recent graduate from the Stanford Graduate School Business, led students through the 5 step process to create a solution to gift-giving. Students interviewed each-other and developed a mobile platform to enhance the gift giving process.They presented their solutions and received feedback from a user level. In addition, students provided user feedback for Lovenotes, utilizing their newly acquired skills. Mindy Kim, a freshman at Folsom High School, said "This design thinking workshop provided incredible insight and can motivate kids to start projects that can eventually grow into something long term. This is definitely a workshop I would recommend for anyone, especially for those who want to start their own business." Amish Gupta, president of DT4T Silicon Valley, recently partnered with San Mateo High School's design thinking club and looks to expand the Silicon Valley network and conduct more workshops in the near future.
