The Old boys from the Batch of 2000 together with the College Library Council organized a workshop on “Design Thinking for Youth” which was held at the College main hall on Friday, 27th July 2018.
The workshop was to guide the young individuals at Trinity to unleash their full potential using design based thinking to approach and solve complex problems.
The workshop was headed by Mr. Sanka Hettiarachchi (Batch of 2000), and conducted by Prof. Suranga Nanayakkara (Associate Professor and Head of the Augmented Human Lab, University of Auckland). The entire workshop was designed to nurture the young minds to develop skills on creativity and innovation; two essential competencies that are required in facing the unknown challenges of the future career landscape.
Participants of the workshop learned how to:
- Understand team dynamics
- Frame and scope problems
- Generate concepts with collaborative ideation techniques
- Prototype and test ideas
- Pitch their ideas to industry experts and potential investors
Trinity is proud to host such a timely event that gave an inspiring and rewarding experience to our young students and we extend our sincere gratitude to all those who organized the workshop which concluded with great success!
