Challenge Overview → Get ready to make a family team!

💡 Have you ever had an idea for a new product but didn’t know where to start? 🤔
🚀 Do you want to learn new skills with your children in a fun and engaging way?

The Product Design Bootcamp is designed to empower parent(s) – kid(s) teams of any background and skillset to use technology and design solutions to everyday challenges.

Delivered through the 3DUCATE learning platform, the bootcamp seamlessly blends live instructor sessions and self-paced learning to accommodate for any schedule. In addition, there are 4 cohorts with different time slots to choose from.

Over the course of a week, you and your children will learn to use 3D design tools to create products that solve real problems. You will apply design thinking principles to generate a range of ideas, seek feedback, evaluate, and materialise the best one. Once your designs are complete, we 3D print and ship your creations back to you in time for Demo Day, where a vote will determine the best designs!
