Challenge / Goal

‘Design Your Future City’ Week was an exciting week-long innovation programme from March 21–25th, for Transition Year students to explore science, technology, art and design. Through interactive workshops students investigated how to use technology to solve local problems.  


The main objective of ‘Design Your Future City’ Week was to allow students to explore the future of cities through collaborative and playful workshops, sparking creativity and critical thinking. Students programmed their own sensors while making their own microbit ‘Pet’.  Electronics textiles and conductive thread allowed students to create their own wearable tech. Speculative design workshops and ‘Technology and Ethics’ debates allowed students to think critically, and user focused design workshops aimed to promote empathy.  

Citizen participation

This is a highly citizen focused use case: the academy programme involved interactive workshops and hands-on activities for the participating students.
