The Design Thinking Ambassadors program prepares educators to become STEM leaders and role models by connecting them with talented STEM professionals in their community to collaborate on future projects and Design Thinking Challenges. Thanks to support from Chevron, twenty-four educators will participate as ambassadors in the Fall 2021 session of this program.
By building a roster of Design Thinking Ambassadors with local connections and business leaders, youth will be able to solve problems that build a better and resilient Houston community. JASON also highlights the fact that the Fall 2021 session will include in-person site visits and involved learning opportunities, putting innovation in action. Previously, the Spring 2021 session, which was exclusive to the Aldine district, was entirely virtual.
