In June 2013 in partnership with Leading is Learning, Mount Vernon hosted an immersive two-day event called //fuse 2013 offering hands on experience with design thinking.
Over two days, educators, students, and community members – from Atlanta and the nation worked together to seek solutions to a real-world challenge. Participants followed a design process to guide their work and create new innovations. They also explored how creative cultures are formed, practiced collaboration, and learned how to lead a group when things get stuck. At the end of the experience, participants had a new language and frameworks to use in their school communities.
