Drstikona - success stories


Societal Problems are best solved by those facing them. Children to drive change in their own communities using a simple design-thinking framework.


Design Thinking is a powerful way for todays students to learn and solve real world challenges, and its being implemented by educators all around the world. And by imparting this knowledge at a K-12 level, we are building capacity in youngsters so that they become problem solvers.


We ran a very successful program for students of Grade 9, 11 from Government school in Haryana and Delhi NCT. Students were taken through a structured 24 hour Design Thinking Program over a a period of 4 months. The hands-on project-based learning culminated in a showcase with some brlliant indigenous solutions.

Stakeholders Speaks

  • The children are very creative. Since they are labour-class children they do not get anything. When their curiosity gets converted to creativity, Innovations are possible.

  • Steelcase philosophy for many years has been around design thinking. In talking and working along with Drstikona, we zeroed in on EBCD to deploy our CSR; where not many people go to but we would want to go there and possibly find out unexplored talent when it comes to thinking about design.
