Design Thinking for Social Innovation – RT Brainery: Episode 3

Reflective Teens initiated its journey to provide a platform for teenagers to express their ideas and their skills. Such ambitious goals require direct buildup from the ground level, and with that aim to improve teenagers’ skills in this country, RT Brainery was launched. Following the success of RT Brainery Episode 2, the overall program’s scale and aim increased, and a dedicated development and management team was deployed for this program. The 4 weeks long weekend program started on 5th February 2021 with expert trainer, Mustafezur Rahman who is well known for being a trainer in design thinking. The participants got to learn design thinking through direct interaction with Mustafezur Rahman on a Zoom video call. The program went on for 4 weeks, every Friday and Saturday. Students also demonstrated their practical skills through various class works as requested by the trainer. Constant tech support was also available. Students learned aspects of problem identification, ideation, critical thinking, collaboration, solution testing, and feedback generation during the classes. They received training regarding the application of design thinking in our everyday life. Overall, it was yet another worthy addition to the portfolio of RT Brainery, something that we hope will lead to the generation of more and more skilled teenagers in this country.
