Anne commented on Full Circle Cafe

Hi Molly-I really like your idea of creating a space to build confidence and equip youth with the essential skills for employment. It might be helpful to check out Old Skool Cafe in SF that has a great model for training youth through restaurant operations.

Anne commented on Preflight: Real-world challenges in the classroom

Hi Gavin!

We are a group of passionate designers sitting in a cafe in San Francisco discussing your brilliant idea! Thank you for giving us the opportunity!

A few questions and ideas we came up with to solidify your plan:

1. Who is your end user: culture, age, gender, geographical location, etc.? All of these answers will help you to refine your plan of action.

2. How do you integrate your plan into an already busy and often jam packed school year? Weekends, during the week? Also consider schedule of professionals.

3. Explore financing.

4. How do we train professionals and teachers on design thinking and education so that they engage students appropriately?

5. Do you utilize classroom space or outside spaces, ie fields trips at companies or renting out a large space that you can use more creatively?

Thanks!
