Design Thinking Challenge
The annual Design Thinking Challenge is an opportunity for the Ekya community to immerse themselves in a socially relevant problem. Independent student teams tackle human-centered challenges such as ‘How might we better integrate the elderly into Bangalore’s society?’ and ‘How might we solve the garbage problem in Bangalore to improve the lives of citizens? Students are encouraged to think critically, identify insights, build on each other’s ideas and learn from failure. With Design Thinking, we aim to bring in the next generation of innovative leaders and problem solvers who are prepared to tackle the challenges of the future.
