NEW: Community Dinner

Thu Apr 27th, 5:30 - 7:15pm


455 S Pierce Street, Lakewood, CO 80226


Design EDU brings communities of Colorado educators together to support K12 innovation. We offer two types of events across the state:


Design EDU Community Dinners are recurring opportunities for about 30 people to socialize and share innovations going on in schools and classrooms right now. Educators bring their challenges to the community for brainstorming and feedback.


Design EDU Days are one-time events where participants learn design thinking and how to apply this approach to education.


Who can come?

We are an open community that includes "doers" from districts, charter schools, independent schools, nonprofits, edtech, foundations, the business community – come one, come all!


Why are we doing this?

We are excited about the future of education and ready to stop talking and start doing.  We've seen Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talk, heard about Khan Academy’s flipped classrooms, and read Tony Wagner’s Creating Innovators.  We believe innovation begins with us, with community, right here in Colorado.


Who are we?

Design EDU is an all-volunteer, non-profit effort supported by the Donnell-Kay Foundation and Colorado Legacy Foundation.
