Want To Help Kids Solve Problems? Have Them Design Their Own Solutions“As designer Alex Pappalardo put it: ‘I realized in a very fundamental way why these students—these fourteen to seventeen year old kids–are the best individuals to be designing solutions to their problems. The three of us ‘designers’ can facilitate with design tools, but they are the experts in this arena. These students are the people who own the knowledge and foster the legacy of their communities. They are the ones to lead the way for the change they want to see.’”
