Today we’re excited to chat with an amazing 15-year-old student. Praja Tickoo is on a mission to empower students through the process of Design Thinking.
Two years ago, Praja had an experience that changed his life forever.
At an event called Design the Future, he collaborated with other youth to help design a better ankle brace for a multiple sclerosis patient.
This experience taught him the power young people have to reshape their world. It also reinforced his conviction that problems can only be solved by questioning assumptions and involving those directly affected.
At the same time, Praja noticed a lack of attention in the education system to core skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity.
He then founded Impact The Future, an organization aimed at teaching the process of design thinking to middle and high school students.
The goal is to equip students with the ability to approach any problem and understand how to adapt to the rapidly changing future. Prepare the students of today to solve tomorrow's problems.
Today we’ll explore how Praja, at the young age of 15 is changing the world.Links Mentioned In Episode>>> Check out his web site Impact The Future
