3 Things Every Teacher Needs to Implement the Design Challenge

The Teacher Toolkit provides educators with a high-level overview of the design challenge, along with links to all key resources. It is a useful tool for program staff as well.

The Teacher Guidebook will be your most important resource. It explains each phase in detail, recommends tools for each step, and provides an overview of all activities and expected outcomes.

Teachers will provide each student with a Student DesignBook, which is their workbook for the challenge. Students should make a copy and fill it out as they progress through the challenge.


The BUILD Design Challenge folder contains all the tools that teachers need to implement the challenge — including pre- & post- surveys, pitch rubrics, and example slide decks.
