DIVE Boot Camps

Offered several times per semester by experts in human-centered design thinking, Boot Camps will give you the chance to explore human-centered design and experiment with the knowledge you have gained.

The next Boot Camp will take place on November 12, 2017 from 12:30pm – 5:00pm at the Wond’ry. In this interactive and hands-on DIVE Boot Camp, we will explore the five steps of human-centered design – empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test – with a lens towards assistive technologies. Additionally, the Boot Camp will serve as a preparatory event for TOM participants. To register online Wond’ry → Upcoming Events.
