Here's your chance to find out more! Monday, April 25, the Innovation & Design Thinking Club will be hosting a lecture presented by Jennifer Jiggetts in the Design Studio (Miller Hall 2052). Ms. Jiggetts was a Peace Corps volunteer in Lesotho, where she taught at a primary school. She noticed that her students, instead of studying, would spend hours retrieving fresh water. Ms. Jiggetts implemented design thinking to find a solution to resolve this issue. As a result, she was able to provide her students with a more impactful education. If you would like to find out more information, please come to the event held next week.
