Habi Kids shows children how design processes work
Mid August is back-to-school time in Finland. Habi Kids Design School offers a different learning experience to youngsters.
The Habi Kids Design School programme 13.-17.9. provides guided workshops for children of various ages, during which they can create a room of the future of recycled materials, decorate virtual spaces, build scale model furniture and ponder living in the future, for example.
The themes of the workshops – Look, Invent, Test and Tell – describe the phases of the design process. The Finnish Association of Design Learning SuoMu is responsible for the Habi Kids Design School concept implementation. Set at the Habitare fair in Messukeskus in September, Habi Kids is a satellite event of Helsinki Design Week’s Children Weekend.
