“This pushed me back to the heart of learning I had lost in my own sea of rigidity: exploration and curiosity.”
Creativity can come in crisis.
Chelsea Voake is Pathways Curriculum Director at Boston Plan for Excellence. She reminded us, in the dark days of COVID winter, that there is space in crisis for change and creativity. In the thick of remote learning and vaccines not yet in arms, we saw Chelsea and her colleagues harness opportunities.
Chelsea’s positivity, openness and generally great energy reminds us that part of our role is to bring that same spirit into our own engagements. Optimism is one of design’s great powers.
The project: We supported Chelsea and Dearborn’s pathways teams in building their senior capstone program. For more on Dearborn’s STEM pathways: https://www.bpe.org/dearborn-stem-academy/about/computer-science-pathway/
