In its sixth year, fuse is a multi-day immersion in design thinking…and design doing. Fuse is a powerful experience created by Mount Vernon Presbyterian School and the Mount Vernon Institute for Innovation, leaders of design thinking in education.
Using our design thinking methodology, we empower participants to build capacity as designers by engaging in design challenges with expert guidance and coaching. By partnering with local nonprofits, we also positively impact Atlanta issues and model how to "do school" differently.
This year, fuse17 includes three stages:
- A Design Thinking FlashLab or a "Consultivation"
- The Moonshot Design Challenge with Atlanta Nonprofit Partners
- A School Retool Action Planning Workshop
