Design Club at Wired Next Gen
Helping teenagers design apps to solve social problems
On Saturday we ran two workshops at Wired Next Generation 2018. The event combines inspirational speakers with workshops to get 13 to 19 year olds excited about science, innovation and technology.
Around 50 young people came along to our workshops
They all designed an app to help someone deal with one of three challenges:
- Use less plastic
- Make new friends
- Start a movement
As always, the groups prototyped their apps using Marvel, and came up with creative and thoughtful ideas. From a movement to help gamers quit fortnight (Quit Fortnite, Get a Life) to an app that helped a 10-year-old American girl to make new friends.
