Fulton County Schools
A team of MV Ventures senior consultants worked with two new Fulton County STEM schools for a year-long consulting partnership. With design thinking at the core of both programs, MVV consultants utilized a hybrid of virtual and in-person sessions to engage with teams of teacher leaders from both schools for comprehensive design thinking training and curriculum design, supporting both administration and faculty.
The first half of the partnership involved a deep-dive into the design thinking methodology, allowing participants to become both users and designers. Team members got a clear understanding of what design thinking is, why it’s such a powerful framework for problem-solving, and what it looks like in the classroom. The second half of the partnership supported the teams to infuse design thinking into the curriculum design including unit plans and design challenges throughout each of the different pathways offered to students.
