Empowered Youth: Human-Centered Design Beyond Tech (SDF2017)
Human-centered design (HCD) is perhaps most well-known in the tech world, but its power isn’t limited to the realm of apps and devices. Artefact will provide a brief overview of the HCD process through the lens of a recent project, and then four local organizations will share inspiring stories about how they leverage HCD methods to empower youth to succeed in school, live healthier lives, and design for diverse communities. These lightning talks will be followed by a panel discussion, with plenty of time for audience questions. Join us to learn how Technology Access Foundation, Sawhorse Revolution, the Q Card Project, and KidsTeam UW are enabling positive outcomes for young people, including students of color and LGBTQ youth.
