Design the Futurean immersive design thinking summer program created by DC Design, will be hosted at the Jacobs Institute from June 25 through July 1, 2018. During this intensive week-long program, high school students (rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders) will work to design and manufacture solutions to real problems faced by individuals with physical disabilities. The program will include guidance from Berkeley-educated mentors; opportunities to hear from speakers in fields such as health, mobility, and entrepreneurship; hands-on design and prototyping experience; and the chance to join a group of peers who are working to solve pressing challenges.

Admission to the program is rolling. Accepted students who apply early will receive a discount off the full program cost (financial aid may also be available for students who demonstrate significant financial hardship). Learn more about the program and apply to participate.
