MYP Design at Daystar Academy

Design fits into everything we do – it’s an iterative cycle of problem-solving, reflection and refinement. It’s a way of making our lives and our world better. School board member, Jack Hsu’s vision for the school, as he articulated at our first meeting at the beginning of the school year, was to create the next Elon Musk and in Design we are equipping our students with the tools to think creatively and critically, to notice the problems of the world around them and come up with solutions to solve them.  We often use the UN Sustainability Goals as a starting point for our work, equipping our young people with as much global knowledge about the lives and struggles of others as possible, so that they may become part of the solution.
