Design Squad Global Clubs

26 Mar 2019

The Design Squad Global Clubs (DSGCs) is an initiative launched under the umbrella of NAMES Network, and the leadership of Al-Nayzak Organization for Supportive Education and Scientific Innovation. The DSGCs are currently running between NAMES Members in Palestine, Lebanon, Tunisia, Turkey, and Saudi Arabic; the sessions of the current round take place once per week for 12 weeks, from 14 February to 17 April 2019.

During the sessions, students work together to find creative solutions to daily problems with limited resources. In addition to learning about design thinking and acquiring an understanding of engineering concepts, the students grasp the values of teamwork and creativity; a combination that allows them to develop their problem-solving skills and turn limited resources into creative tools. The participants are very curious during the challenging sessions and interact enthusiastically with the activities, demanding those types of challenges.
