Developing the Future of Sioux Steel

Kids today will be living with the built world that past & present adult builders and architects designed. Often, we assume that our designs will be appreciated and celebrated by future generations. Those kids though don’t have any say in what results. Why not allow kids to take a crack at it? This summer, 4D EDU is teaming up with Sioux Steel to let the future builders and architects of the world to create a design for the new Sioux Steel Development. Using Minecraft and Legos, kids will navigate a design process in order to envision the future of the 11-acre property running along the Big Sioux River. The designs will be presented at a special event on Friday, July 13.

Multidisciplinary Learning
The future of learning is not confined to single subjects. It is about breaking down silos and connecting dots. This series will teach kids to teach themselves, using the games & toys that they already love.

Design Thinking
Using the process of Design Thinking, the same process used by the likes of Apple and Tesla, kids will learn how to empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test their designs for the future.
