Project Description

At fuse17, MVIFI built upon our partnership with Plywood People, and we collaborated with three Atlanta nonprofits in their network  – Love Beyond WallsBeds4Kids and Georgia Farmers Market Association. After leading the fuse17 participants through one of two labs (DT 101 FlashLab or DT 102 Consultivation,), the Flight Crew (coaches) from Mount Vernon Presbyterian School and the Mount Vernon Institute for Innovation guided the three bases of design thinkers and doers on a mission to make a difference with our nonprofit partners while learning DEEP design thinking methods.

Again, our nonprofit partners left fuse17 with viable prototypes for opportunities ahead of them, and our design-thinking participant learners left with strong experimentation about how to spread such community-connected work to their schools and organizations.
