In response to COVID-19 we are changing the students’ final product. For 2020, students will need to submit ONLY a pitch deck using this template (see attached).

Students will need to respond to the questions specified on the each slide and in the comment section they must include the script for their pitch adhering to the word limits as specified.

Please note that the Design Thinking Playbook below was written prior to COVID-19 and that students are not required to submit an Executive Summary for 2020.

Your class may like to explore the resources and videos on this website. We are also providing the following resources to help you get started.
