SAVE THE DATE Wed, May 10th, I.S. 145's Virtual App Design Fair

You are cordially invited to I.S. 145's Annual Virtual Design Fair! With the help of our partners, Mouse Create and DIIT, our students were given the opportunity for the third year in a row to be a part of Design League. In Design League our students learned to research, brainstorm, prototype, and share their own technology innovation. By practicing and applying the Human-Centered Design process, they learned to empathize with their users and design technologies that address an authentic need. Our students interviewed prospective users and people within the design industry in hopes to create the perfect app.

The top 10 finalists will compete in the virtual fair to see which groups will move onto the city-wide finals.

All are welcomed and we hope to see you there.
