Brandywine Zoo + Design Thinking Academy Exhibition

On December 13th, students from Design Thinking Academy will share the work they did in collaboration with the Brandywine Zoo. As part of an innovative partnership, students were positioned as designers and consultants with the task of improving the visitor experience at the Zoo.

During the fall of 2018, a small group of students took four trips to the Zoo, interviewing attendees, staff and observing how the organization works. After selecting problem areas to address, the students formed four teams and began prototyping real ideas to implement at the Zoo.

All are invited to attend the student showcase that begins at at 1:15 with student presentations starting at 1:45 in the cafegymatorium at Design Thinking Academy, 179 Stanton Christiana Rd, Newark, DE 19702.
