BUILD Launches New Digital Curriculum for Educators


“How might we BUILD powerful, thriving communities where EVERYONE enjoys safety, wellness, and economic freedom?”


Today, BUILD Launches New Digital Curriculum for Educators! BUILD is excited to launch our Thriving Communities Design Challenge for teachers nationwide. BUILD’s Design Challenge is an interactive, FREE virtual curriculum for educators that empowers middle and high school students to solve real challenges in their own communities while learning to use the human-centered design process. Students develop innovative solutions to our 2021-2022 challenge question: “How might we build powerful, thriving communities where everyone enjoys safety, wellness, and economic freedom?” 

Educators, nonprofits and schools, join BUILD’s Thriving Communities Design Challenge – a fun, online experience for students and teachers alike, focused around human-centered design.

  • Interactive 360° interview experiences, similar to virtual reality for students!
