Discovery - S03

The ‘discovery’ section of the Fixpert's resource focuses on developing skills and confidence relating to design thinking. It works well as a starter for an in-depth design lesson. Structured activities help students to view their surroundings with fresh eyes and think outside the box. Ideation techniques are explored to help students loosen their creative thinking, including introducing the use of SCAMPER (substitute, combine, adapt, maximise/minimise, purpose, re-arrange) as a design thinking tool.
