A design-thinking led international
open-innovation platform for 11-17 year olds to solve critical challenges, through our global education initiative
WHAT IS LUMI?
Lumi runs moderated and fun-filled quests that unleash the innate creativity of young minds
10 participants across 11-14 & 15-17 age groups
Expertly moderated weekly online sessions supplemented with guided offline engagement
Each quest comprises 3 phases across with minimum 2 and maximum 5 month commitment:
Month 1: Ideation- delve into a specific global challenge & come up with ideas to help solve them in some way
Month 2: Creation - scope & refine the idea in a small team and develop an initial blueprint, with external inputs
Month 3-5: Prototype & Development- develop a minimum lovable product initially targeting friends / family / school
Soon, select solutions emerging from the quests will move into the Lumi Lab from month 6, where they will be supported extensively to go further
