In this lesson, students will be introduced to the design thinking process that is used to solve complex problems and as a tool for innovation. Being creative and innovative can be taught and enhanced through explicit and implicit practice. Students will flex these thinking skills by playing a game that requires them to adapt an object by improving it, transforming it, or combining it with another object.
