What is it?
Raising young innovators and creators is not rocket science anymore, because we created "Design Explorers" - a full-fledged program for parents and 4–10 y.o. kids, aiming to shape lifelong habits and skills.
The program is made of missions - engaging design projects with varying length (from a few hours to a few days), giving you new and diverse ways to learn, play, communicate and create with your kids. The missions help you explore the world through the eyes of professions and human activities, examine interesting topics, make your everyday situations more exciting or get to know world events and holidays from a new perspective.
We create the missions with our own adaptation of design thinking - the world-leading method for innovation. It helps children to discover the world around them, explore, plan and research, solve problems and come up with different options, work in a team, prototype and present their ideas. And most importantly - create their own solutions.
How does it work?
1. Subscribe to the program — the monthly amount is 15$, roughly the price of a children's book. If you decide to subscribe for a whole year, you get a 10% discount. You can cancel anytime, and if you're not happy for some reason, we offer a full refund up to 30 days after your initial subscription. More than one kid? Good news - you don't need to upgrade or subscribe once more.
2. You get a new mission every Monday — the missions arrive online in your inbox. Many of them have a well-designed and handy PDF diary attached to it, ready to print and play (see a sample mission here).
3. You become part of the community — it's the place where we share our experiences with the missions and discuss important topics on education and child development. It's important to note that the program exists and grows only with the support of the parents who subscribe to it, helping us to keep moving forward.
4. Next Monday you get a new mission! And since the program doesn’t have a fixed completion period, you get to play as many missions as you want to.
